Running Docker without Linux

docker

(Moraym) #1

Hi there, I’m looking to use Docker for Windows to host .Net Core applications in Windows containers but the network we use for development is heavily locked down and Linux in any form is forbidden. I understand that for Linux containers Docker for Windows works by hosting them on a Linux VM running on Hyper-V—which would be blocked on my network. Is this also the case if I want to run Windows containers on Docker for Windows? And if so, can I install Docker without any Linux components whatsoever?

Thanks!
