A big portion of last year I’ve spent building accelerators for a Sitecore solution scaffolding and deployments aside from production projects. All this work was done for VMs created in a cloud managed via OpenStack.
Using PowerShell DSC we were able to easily setup single machine local sandboxes as well as multi-server environments. However, provisioning VM and then configuring them is still less than ideal for deployment of an application. What I was really waiting for is a release of a windows containers.
Finally, they arrived closer to the end of last year and few month later I was able to try them out. So I’m going to start describing what I’ve ended up creating, keeping in mind that tweet from last year:
