In Version 1709, Windows Server introduced a series of new features such as Windows Subsystem for Linux, Linux containers, distribution optimization, and more. And as the first preview version of the RedStone 4 development branch, this update did not focus too much on introducing new features, but more bug fixes and background stability and performance tuning.
Windows Server Build 17035 major new features introduced include:
● Activate the Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) function. S2D is a key cornerstone of a hyper-converged infrastructure and not only reintroduced this feature in this release of the preview, but also added some new and significant updates such as the most desperately needed deduplication for S2D and ReFS And other functions. Since this release, deduplication can help reduce digital footprints by up to 50%.
● Developers can use localhost or loopback (127.0.0.1) to access services running on the container.
