Running Ubuntu Containers with Hyper-V Isolation on Windows

Dustin Kirkland

on 13 September 2017

Canonical and Microsoft have teamed up to deliver an truly special experience — running Ubuntu containers with Hyper-V Isolation on Windows 10 and Windows Servers!

We have published a fantastic tutorial at https://ubu.one/UhyperV, with screenshots and easy-to-follow instructions.  You should be up and running in minutes!

Follow that tutorial, and you’ll be able to launch Ubuntu containers with Hyper-V isolation by running the following directly from a Windows Powershell:

  • docker run -it ubuntu bash

Cheers!
