NEWS: Docker & Microsoft create strategic partnership to bring container applications across platforms


Microsoft Corp. and Docker Inc., the company behind the fast-growing Docker open platform for distributed applications, on Wednesday announced a strategic partnership to provide Docker with support for new container technologies that will be delivered in a future release of Windows Server.

Developers and organizations that want to create container applications using Docker will be able to use either Windows Server or Linux with the same growing Docker ecosystem of users, applications and tools.

Today’s business climate requires higher levels of innovation than before, and distributed applications that support open portability are at the forefront of this demand. Docker is addressing this need, driving developer productivity and agility through a containerization approach that moves application code changes from development to production in minutes, enabling real-time change.
