Installing Docker

We highly recommend using Linux for your NodeZero Host.

“Docker is a tool designed to make it easier to create, deploy, and run applications by using containers. Containers allow a developer to package up an application with all of the parts it needs, such as libraries and other dependencies, and deploy it as one package. By doing so, thanks to the container, the developer can rest assured that the application will run on any other Linux machine regardless of any customized settings that machine might have that could differ from the machine used for writing and testing the code.”

Linux Guide

To host the NodeZero Docker container, Docker Community Edition is required and compatible with most Linux Operating Systems. For comprehensive installation instructions, we recommend referring directly to Docker's official documentation.

Install Docker on Ubuntu

For Ubuntu users, the best resource for installing Docker is the Docker Installation Page for Ubuntu. This page provides step-by-step guidance tailored to different versions of Ubuntu, ensuring you have the most relevant and up-to-date information for your installation.
