Pengwin Enterprise

Pengwin Enterprise is an enterprise Linux solution for Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) that is compatible with mainstream enterprise Linux distributions.

New and casual Linux users are strongly encouraged to obtain Pengwin from the Microsoft Store instead. Pengwin includes end user support and several usability modifications and tools, such as pengwin-setup, to improve the overall WSL experience for end users.

For Enterprise

Pengwin Enterprise allows businesses, education, government, and other organizations to deploy a secure, reliable, and familiar Linux distribution on Windows Subsystem for Linux on Windows 10.

Pengwin Enterprise was designed to be highly adaptable for secure enterprise environments and is compatible with the mainstream enterprise Linux vendor distribution and other derivatives.

Custom builds of Pengwin Enterprise can be configured using standard Kickstart files to use internal package repositories and leverage other mainstream enterprise Linux vendor distribution security features.

Businesses and other organizations who wish to license Pengwin Enterprise, develop a custom build for their specific needs, and recieve ongoing support for Pengwin Enterprise should e-mail us or visit our website for advice, details, and a quote.

There are several approaches to deploying Pengwin Enterprise on existing Windows 10 networks and Whitewater Foundry will work with your business or organization to develop a deployment, security, and support solution:

Microsoft Store Build

Pengwin Enterprise is provided on the Microsoft Store on a self-support basis for advanced individual end users who simply need an enterprise compatible WSL distro. It adheres very closely to mainstream enterprise Linux defaults. The Pengwin Enterprise build provided on the Microsoft Store does NOT include dedicated end user support, pengwin-setup, or the usability features that accompany Pengwin.

The Pengwin Enterprise build provided on the Microsoft Store is derived from Scientific Linux an enterprise Linux rebuild sponsored by the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.

Documentation

Support

Pengwin Enterprise is provided on the Microsoft Store for individual users on a self-support basis. Basic troubleshooting will solve many problems. You may also open an issue on our GitHub for community support.

Businesses and other organizations who would like to recieve professional ongoing support should e-mail us or visit our website.

About

Whitewater Foundry, Ltd. Co. is an open-source startup that created Pengwin, the first Linux distribution designed for Windows Subsystem for Linux on Windows 10. Pengwin has since become a top developer tool on the Microsoft Store and Whitewater Foundry, Ltd. Co. has grown to a worldwide team. Pengwin Enterprise grew out of demand for a mainstream enterprise Linux vendor distribution on WSL from enterprise clients.
