We are excited to announce a limited preview of Azure Container Service for Windows Server containers. To join the preview, please register here. We look forward to receiving your feedback!

Azure Container Service is designed for enterprises, ISVs and startups looking to put containers into production, quickly and simply. It combines Azure’s infrastructure with a choice of open source container orchestration technology: DC/OS or Docker Swarm. To provision your container service, you simply select the VM cluster size, DC/OS or Swarm, and the Azure region, and the container service handles everything else. This preview of Windows Server containers under the Azure Container Service currently only supports Docker Swarm as the orchestrator.

Azure is founded on maximum choice for all developers and ITPros. With this preview, we’re opening the Azure Container Service to Windows Server developers for the first time.
