Installing Docker

The StorageGRID system runs on Linux 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.

  2. Ensure Docker has been enabled and started by running the following two commands:
    sudo systemctl enable docker
    sudo systemctl start docker
  3. Confirm you have installed the expected version of Docker by entering the following:
    sudo docker version
    The Client and Server versions must be 1.10.3 or later.
