Containers are the latest buzz in IT technology. Containers enable you to isolate your applications from the underlying OS improving the deployment and reliability of those applications. Windows Server 2016 will provide two kinds of native containers: Windows Server Containers and Hyper-V Containers. Windows Server Containers are isolated from each other but they run directly on the Windows Server 2016 OS. Hyper-V Containers provide enhanced isolation by running the containers from a Hyper-V VM.

JEA allows you to create role-based access control (RBAC) endpoints that define precisely what actions you’ll let your users carry out without the need for elevated, privileged administrator credentials.

In this course we will talk about the new features in Windows Server 2016. The newest version of the Microsoft Server family has some great new concepts and improves the existing features. Focused on cloud deployments (private or public) Windows Server 2016 will have enhanced Hyper-V features (Shielded VMs, hot add memory and network adapters, ...) and improved cluster services (Rolling upgrade, site-awareness, ...) But the biggest change in Windows Server 2016 is without doubt Containers support. Follow this course and learn all about these exciting new features!
