Windows container types in docker
today I want to write a few words about two types of containers in windows:
- Windows server containers
- Hyper-V containers
Windows server containers provide application isolation through process and namespace isolation. Windows server container shares a kernel with the container host and all containres running on the host.
Hyper-V containers expand on the isolation provided by Windows server containers by running each container in a highly optimized virtual machine. In this configuration kernel of the container host is not shared with other Hyper-V containers.
