Containerized SQL Server 2016 Express Edition

The SQL Server team announces a Docker image for SQL Server 2016 Express Edition:

SQL Server 2016 in a Windows container would be ideal when you want to:

  1. Quickly create and start a set of SQL Server instances for development or testing.

  2. Maximize density in test or production environments, especially in microservice architectures.

  3. Isolate and control applications in a multi-tenant infrastructure.

Works on Windows only.  Given that SQL Server on Linux is going to be a thing, I could see general release through Docker there as well, but we’ll see.
