Yesterday, Bellevue (WA) based company WinDocks, released a free edition of its homonymous port of the Docker daemon to Windows called WinDocks Community Edition.
The company, founded by a small group of former Microsoft’s employees, rides Docker’s momentum and promotes DevOps practices in Microsoft’s space.
WinDocks Community Edition adds support for Windows 8 & 10 in addition to Windows Server 2012, extending container support for .NET 2, 3.5, 4.5, SQL Server 2008, 2008r2, 2012, 2014 and Windows applications to Microsoft’s desktop OSes.
The WinDocks Community Edition is available immediately for download at the WinDocks web site (http://www.windocks.com ), with an automated install that will detect and configure WinDocks on any of the supported Windows environments. It is also available as a pre-configured VM through Amazon’s AWS Marketplace. Visit: https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace
