Solution-Soft's Time Machine® Now Supports Distroless & MSSQL Containers

SANTA CLARA, CA, October 4, 2019 SolutionSoft Systems Inc. (Solution-Soft), the leader in date and time testing software solutions, has released a new version of its flagship software Time Machine to support Distroless containers and MSSQL containers.

Time Machine users can now run with Distroless containers (developed by Google), Distroless containers reduce the Docker container footprint to include only the application, its resources, and language runtime dependencies without operating system distribution. This heightens security, reduces patching vulnerability overhead, and boosts performance with smaller image sizes.

"With the increasing popularity of Agile/DevOps & CI/CD, we've seen many of our customers moving their workloads into the containers. Some even have a mixture of docker containers and containers. Time traveling the entire environment to run critical application testing presented an exciting challenge, and we’ve risen to the occasion" says Paul Wang, CTO of Solution-Soft. "I'm very happy we can have our Time Machine ready for container in such a short this easy-to-use and powerful solution can continue to address customers' urgent testing needs."

We’ve also extended our support to include the MSSQL Docker container for Linux, a new innovation from Microsoft. We were able to provide a combined image of MSSQL and Time Machine, which can time travel and make MSSQL come up as to gain better security.

"One of our insurance customers is moving their Guidewire production workload into containers, we are thrilled to be able to support this customer in this migration in a two week tight window with intense efforts. Watching more than a dozen test environments time travel seamlessly with MSSQL containers all our hard work worthwhile." says Paul Wang, CTO of Solution-Soft.
