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.”
The NodeZero Docker container can be hosted on most Linux Operating Systems by using Docker Community Edition. The following steps cover installing docker on Ubuntu. If you prefer a different Linux OS, view these other Linux references.
Install Docker on Ubuntu
apt-get install docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd.io
Ubuntu 20.04 Note
On Ubuntu version 20.04, replace the above command
apt-get install docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd.io with
sudo apt-get install -y docker.io
Ensure you are running a version of docker greater than or equal to 20.10 (Use
docker --version to find out)
Additional Linux distributions:
- Install Docker Engine Information Page
- Install Docker on Ubuntu
- Install Docker on CentOS
- Install Docker on Debian
- Install Docker on Fedora
Success! Time to validate
Once you've installed Docker on your Linux OS, you're done! Now validate NodeZero is ready to operate.
