Kubernetes Supports Windows Server 2016 Containers

Kubernetes 1.5 introduces alpha support for both Windows Server Containers and Hyper-V Containers.

Also, you can run containerized multiplatform applications, where applications can now be deployed on both Linux and Windows Server 2016.

An upcoming feature in Kubernetes will be to deploy to any cloud (Azure, AWS, GCP).

As an interesting sidenote: Windows Containers offer isolation through namespace and process isolation whilst Hyper-V Containers isolate each container via a lightweight VM.
