Installing Docker

The StorageGRID system runs on Red Hat Enterprise Linux or CentOS as a collection of Docker containers. Before you can install StorageGRID, you must install Docker.

Procedure

  1. Install Docker by following the instructions for your Linux distribution.
    Note: If Docker is not included with your Linux distribution, you can download it from the Docker website.
