How to deploy a Windows container on Google Kubernetes Engine

Many people who run Windows containers want to use a container management platform like Kubernetes for resiliency and scalability. In a previous post, we showed you how to run an IIS site inside a Windows container deployed to Windows Server 2019 running on Compute Engine. That’s a good start, but you can now also run Windows containers on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE).

In this blog post, let’s look at how to deploy that same Windows container to GKE.
