How to deploy a Windows container on Google Compute Engine

Last year, we published a blog post and demonstrated how to deploy a Windows container running Windows Server 2016 on Google Compute Engine. Since then, there have been a number of important developments. First, Microsoft announced the availability of Windows Server 2019. Second, Kubernetes 1.14 was released with support for Windows nodes and Windows containers.

Supporting Windows workloads and helping you modernize your apps using containers and Kubernetes is one of our top priorities at Google Cloud. Soon after the Microsoft and Kubernetes announcements, we added support for Windows Server 2019 in Compute Engine and Windows containers in Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE).
