Kubernetes on Windows

Elton Stoneman helps us get started with Kubernetes on Windows boxes:

Now you can take older .NET Framework apps and run them in Kubernetes, which is going to help you move them to the cloud and modernize the architecture. You start by running your old monolithic app in a Windows container, then you gradually break features out and run them in .NET Core on Linux containers.

Organizations have been taking that approach with Docker Swarm for a few years now. I cover it in my book Docker on Windows and in my Docker Windows Workshop. It’s a very successful way to do migrations – breaking up monoliths to get the benefits of cloud-native architecture, without a full-on rewrite project.

Now you can do those migrations with Kubernetes. That opens up some interesting new patterns, and the option of running containerized Windows workloads in a managed Kubernetes service in the cloud.

Elton’s not kidding about this support being new. I’m not sure I’d entrust it for my production work just yet, but I’m glad to see people working on the problem.
