Install Docker

Which Docker should I install?

Linux

Docker only runs natively on Linux. If you are running Linux on your computer, you must install Docker locally.

Mac OS

If you have Mac OS 10.10.3 Yosemite or newer, you can install Docker for Mac OS. Docker for Mac runs as a native Mac application and uses xhyve to virtualize the Docker Engine environment and Linux kernel-specific features for the Docker daemon.

If you have an older version of Mac OS (10.8 Mountain Lion and later) you need to install Docker Toolbox for Mac OS, which includes Docker Machine, a Linux virtual machine that runs Docker.

Windows

If you have Windows 10 you can install Docker for Windows. Docker for Windows runs as a native Windows application. It uses the Hyper-V feature of the Windows OS to virtualize the Docker Engine environment and Linux kernel-specific features for the Docker daemon.

If you have Windows 7 or 8 you need to install Docker Toolbox for Windows, which includes Docker Machine, a Linux virtual machine that runs Docker. It allows you to run Docker commands from your terminal, or from a 'Quickstart terminal' application on your computer.
