For Windows Server 2012 R2, Server 2016, Server 2019, and Server 2022

Windocks or Docker SQL Server containers, PostgreSQL, MySQL containers clones with cloned databases using the Community Edition

Windocks Community Edition is a freely downloadable version of Windocks that supports a maximum of 2 containers simultaneously. You can create upto 2 database environments on one machine in seconds using docker commands, the REST API or the web application UI.

For example, a team of 2 testers can spin up 2 isolated SQL Server containers with a database in each container - all on one machine in a few seconds! Each tester can run their own tests on their individual databases. After a tester finishes testing once and has altered the database, he or she may want a fresh copy of the database again. Using Windocks, the tester can spin up another SQL Server container with a fresh database in seconds.

You may use a docker client available from Docker Inc to work with the Windocks server. Or you may use the docker.exe provided by Windocks. If you prefer UI, then you may use the Windocks web application UI that is also installed automatically.

The Free edition limits you to one database per container and also to database files that are less than 500MB. If you need more than this, then you may upgrade here

Windocks supports the creation of SQL Server 2022, 2019, 2017, 2016, SQL Server 2014, SQL Server 2012, SQL Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2008 containers.
