IT:AD:Spoon

Summary

Comparable to IT:AD:Docker, used to create lightweight Virtual Environments (VEs) rather than Virtual Machines (VMs).

  • Advantages:
    • Available on Windows, whereas IT:AD:Docker is Linux only for now (although will be available in Windows Server 2016).
    • Images can be stacked: lego blocking capability.
    • Images can be streamed (IT:AD:Docker cannot).
      • Allows testers and stakeholders outside the environment to try software.
    • Variable isolation – containers can be more or less isolated. That's neat.
    • Scriptable, just like IT:AD:Docker
  • Considerations:
    • The free version doesn't get you far.
  • Disadvantages:
