Microsoft Windows equivalent to LXC

by The Internet   Last Updated July 14, 2018 15:00 PM

Does Microsoft Windows have any equivalent product similar to Ubuntu's LXC container virtualization technology?

There's nothing exactly like Linux containers in the Windows world. App-V is probably the closest you'll get.

Late answer :-)

Now there is something : Windows Containers & Hyper-V containers

"In a similar way, Microsoft has been adding containerization primitives to the Windows kernel, allowing any user code to execute a process in a sandboxed environment. Those feature are only available in the just released Windows Server 2016 Tech Preview 3 (TP3), which makes it the only Windows Server operating system that is capable of running the Docker daemon today"

You can create Linux and also Windows containers if you are a windows 10 user.

This uses hyper-v for virtualization and docker containers for containerization.
