Kubernetes V1.9 released

From the Kubernetes blog, the next version of Kubernetes has been released. And one feature has definitely caught my eye:

Windows Support (beta)

Kubernetes was originally developed for Linux systems, but as our users are realizing the benefits of container orchestration at scale, we are seeing demand for Kubernetes to run Windows workloads. Work to support Windows Server in Kubernetes began in earnest about 12 months ago. SIG-Windows has now promoted this feature to beta status, which means that we can evaluate it for usage.

So users of Windows can now hook up Windows boxes into their cluster. Which leads to an interesting case of mixed-OS clusters. Strictly speaking, that’s already possible now with a mix of Linux distributions able to run Kubernetes.
