Windows Server 2016 is expected to be made generally available sometime in Q3 2016, and with it, the Windows Containers API.

Supporting Windows Containers natively is a major growth opportunity for the Mesos community -- by enabling users to operate clusters containing a mix of Unix and Windows hosts, it is possible to significantly reduce administrative overhead and increase resource utilization in data centers.

In this talk we will provide a ground-up view of the work we have done over the last year to make the Windows agent a reality.

We’ll cover the changes made to Mesos core so far, discussing in detail how the Mesos agent works on Windows. We will then discuss the implications of these changes at the service level, covering how to operate clusters with a mix of Windows and Unix nodes in practice.

Finally, we will present a demo running on such a cluster, and a roadmap for future plans.
