In April, we announced
Azure’s support for the Mesosphere Datacenter Operating System (DCOS), which expanded the options for container deployment and orchestrations solutions on Azure. Since that time, we have been continuing to build on our close partnership with Mesosphere and today we are excited to announce that Microsoft and Mesosphere are partnering to bring the Mesos’ highly scalable and elastic container orchestration to the world by porting directly to Windows Server. Mesos on Windows Server is an open source project and is part of the core Apache Mesos.
While this is being developed by both Mesosphere and Microsoft, we’re inviting others in the community to join in the effort. The code will be freely available, making it easy to adopt by all users of Mesos as well as the Mesosphere DCOS, which is built atop Mesos.
