Discover the benefits of moving older .NET applications to Docker Enterprise and the simple steps to modernize these applications
Docker and Microsoft have a joint engineering relationship to deliver a consistent Docker experience for developers and operators. All Windows Server 2016 and later versions come with Docker Engine - Enterprise. Additionally, developers can leverage Docker natively with Windows 10 via Docker Desktop. Docker Windows containers work the same way as it does on Linux: same Docker CLI, API, image format and content distribution services. Additional benefits:
Docker Enterprise allows you to run both Windows Server and Linux nodes in the same cluster, allowing organizations to secure and manage a diverse set of containerized applications.
This includes hybrid applications that leverage both Linux-based and Windows-based components (e.g. MS SQL database with a Java front-end). With Docker Enterprise, Windows containers also have access to the same advanced container management features as Linux containers including image signing and scanning, overlay networking, and secrets management.
Docker has a program that combines the Docker Enterprise platform with tools and expertise to containerize legacy Windows Server applications, upgrade them to Windows Server 2016+ and accelerate the migration to cloud — all without changing a single line of code. Increase your legacy application security while dramatically reducing the time and cost of maintaining that application.
