Feedback form is now closed.

The days of needing custom scripts and hard-won knowledge to set up and configure Windows Server hosts are over. The new Windows HostProcess Container feature in Kubernetes has begun to close a major feature gap between Windows and Linux containers. We now have a way to carry out key tasks such as running kube-proxy and CNIs (Container Network Interface) as containers in the cluster. Beyond the basics, HostProcess containers also open the door to more effective logging, monitoring and debugging of the Windows environment.   In this session, we will cover the basics of using HostProcess containers and see how they differ from other Windows containers. After gaining an understanding of these differences, we will explore three examples covering the common use cases for HostProcess containers: CNIs, debugging, and on-demand monitoring. The attendees will see concrete examples of HostProcess Containers, novel approaches to debugging, and gain inspiration for new ways of interacting with Windows enabled clusters.
