Have you heard about Nano Server? I thought you might have done. It made just a little bit of noise when we announced it back in April, and since then, the momentum has been building!
For those of you that are thinking, what is Nano Server?, well, in a nutshell, and to steal a line or two from the above linked blog post, Nano Server is…
“a purpose-built operating system designed to run born-in-the-cloud applications and containers. As customers adopt modern applications and next-generation cloud technologies, they need an OS that delivers speed, agility and lower resource consumption. Nano Server is a deeply refactored version of Windows Server with a small footprint and remotely managed installation, optimized for the cloud and a DevOps workflow. It is designed for fewer patch and update events, faster restarts, better resource utilization and tighter security”
To help you along your Nano Server journey, we’ve published a decent amount of documentation, heck, even a few videos for you, but a couple of weeks back, I had the pleasure of spending a day in the studio with, arguably, 2 of the guys closest to Nano Server, namely, Andrew Mason and Refaat Issa, to record a full Microsoft Virtual Academy Training course, solely dedicated to Nano Server. Simply put, if you’re interested in learning about Nano Server, you should go and view this course.
The guys put a huge amount of effort into the course, delivering multiple demos to help you understand how to configure, deploy and manage Nano Server, and we hope that by the end of the course, you’re much more comfortable with Nano Server!
