Microsoft’s Nano Server and Hyper-V Containers

  • Nano servers.
  • New containers.
  • Some analysis by Tim Anderson.
  • TPM on the Windows Server footprint: “With Microsoft trying to get an installed base of more than eight million Windows Server 2003 machines upgraded before the middle of summer, when tech support ends, this year was not a good time to muddle the market message with a new server version of Windows.” But does this apply to “legacy” workloads, or is it the same “only-cloud-native-apps-need-apply story,” as for most container platforms?

  • Oh wait, OpenStack’s fine but boring.
  • “OpenStack, ultimately, is a feature not a product. And that’s not a bad thing.”
