Windows Server gets improvised nano containers and bi-annual feature updates

Windows Server gets improvised nano containers and bi-annual feature updates

After announcing its plans to release two major feature updates for Windows 10 and Office every year, Microsoft has now extended the same release cycle to the Windows Server as well. Microsoft will be releasing two feature updates every year, one in spring and another one in fall. This will also bring the Windows Server, Windows, and Office cycle into the same timeline. With the new update cycle in place, customers will be able to access to new features faster than before. Additionally, System Center will also be releasing their major updates that follow the same bi-annual cycle.
Customers will be able to get access to Windows Server in the semi-annual channel via the following ways:

Microsoft also made some changes when it comes to the nano server for the containers. After extensive feedback from customers, Microsoft understands that the Nano Server for containers is the highest priority and that smaller is better. Keeping these suggestions in mind, Microsoft has now promised that the Nano Server images will shrink in size by more than 50% and this will help improve the startup time and container density as well.

Furthermore, Microsoft also announced that the Server Core will be included in the semi-annual channel. The Server Core is often referred to as the “headless” installation of the operating system including all the roles and features deemed necessary to run data centere servers. Microsoft is also recommending the Server Core for hosting the virtual machines and the containers.
