Managing a network is one thing. Managing a mixed network that includes on-premise and cloud servers, and servers running different operating systems, and virtual servers hosted on different virtualization platforms adds significant complexity. But, what if it didn’t really matter?
Docker–and the concept of containers–is hot right now, and still gaining momentum. The ability to run virtualized apps in modular containers independent of the operating system enables organizations to be much more agile and efficient. Microsoft wants to incorporate that
