Getting Started with Docker
Docker enables you to deliver software quickly by separating your applications from your infrastructure. Thus, Docker acts as an “isolated, resource controlled, and portable operating environment” that can host any specific application on any machine without the hassle of deploying the environment manually.
NCache extends this functionality by hosting Docker images and providing Dockerfiles for NCache in the following environments:
- Windows Server (NCache Enterprise)
- Linux (NCache Enterprise)
Using these images, you can create containers that host NCache or create your own customized images by modifying the Dockerfiles.
Windows Server Core
The NCache docker image for windows is built upon the Windows Server Core image and uses the same for its licensing model.
Linux Debian 11
mcr.microsoft.com/dotnet/sdk:6.0. The NCache Docker image for Linux is built upon the base image of .NET Core 6.0 SDK. This image is further built upon a runtime image of Linux Debian 11 and uses the same license as Linux Debian.
