This package was approved as a trusted package on 3/13/2017.

etcd is a distributed, consistent key-value store for shared configuration and service discovery, with a focus on being:

* Simple: curl'able user facing API (HTTP+JSON)
* Secure: optional SSL client cert authentication
* Fast: benchmarked 1000s of writes/s per instance
* Reliable: properly distributed using Raft

etcd is written in Go and uses the Raft consensus algorithm to manage a highly-available replicated log.
This package installs etcd as a service, and makes etcdctl.exe available in the path.

The package will pass package parameters to the etcd service.
Example: choco install etcd -y --params="-discovery"

The service is managed with NSSM, you can change the service parameters easily by running nssm edit etcd

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
