Docker Installation

Until a year or so, it was a pain to install Docker, but now it’s a piece of cake. Docker is based on Linux technology, which is good news, as most of the Linux major distributions such as Centos, Ubuntu, and Amazon Linux support Docker.

In this chapter, we cover installation on Mac OS X, Windows, and Ubuntu Linux.

Installing Docker on Mac OS X

These installation instructions assume your Mac is from 2010 or later, with OS X 10.11 or later. To verify, click the Apple icon and select About This Mac. We will download and work with Docker release 17.03.0:. This is the latest release at the time of writing this book.
