Docker Expands Windows Desktop Support, Automates Kubernetes Clusters

Docker wants to make Kubernetes management on a Windows desktop more robustand easier. Dockers recently introduced Windows Desktop 18.02 Edge release includes, among other features, an option to automate the installation of a Kubernetes cluster and better support for Linux containers. Kubernetes is an extremely powerful container orchestrator, and with that power comes complexity. To date that complexity has made it difficult for developers to host a Kubernetes cluster within their development environment, requiring the use of Kubernetes clusters hosted elsewhere, or being unable to develop in an environment that matches their integration, QA and production environments, says Carl Fischer, Dockers principal partner program manager. This has increased the chances of defects or deployment issues.
