Installing ubuntu version using Windows's Bash


#1

Hi!

I’m new to aerospike, and i’m a windows developer. Now that windows 10 runs bash/ubuntu natively, can we use it to install/run aerospike? I didnt find anything. The VM sugested uses a lot of memory/CPU power, and i’d like to avoid, if possible.

Anyone have any thougths? Thanks!

Hi,

Thanks for your interest in using Aerospike on windows. Unfortunately aerospike server does not run out of the box in the Ubuntu shell on Windows. The reason is that the Ubuntu shell is only a set of GNU utils and not a kernel (which is there in VM/dockers). Aerospike makes some system calls for auto-detecting network interfaces etc

However, you can run aerospike c-client and node.js from the Ubuntu shell. I tested this myself and verified that it runs properly.
