- [Instructor] In this course, we'll be installing Docker on multiple platforms. For example: when we install Docker for Mac, we'll assume that you have a Mac desktop or laptop computer with a Mac OS operating system. When we install Docker for Windows, as we talked about in that video, we assume that you have a Windows 10 Professional 64 bit operating system to run Docker for Windows. In other videos, we install Docker for Windows on Windows Server 2016, which you can evaluate from microsoft.com by signing up and downloading the ISO installation media for Windows.
That Windows Server installation can be done either locally, in a virtual machine as I've done here in Vmware Fusion. Or you could forego the installation and run docker for Windows Server on a virtual machine in AWS or Azure in the cloud. Speaking of AWS. In one video, we installed Docker for Linux on CentOS in AWS. Using Amazon Web Services, you could install Docker in multiple Linux operating systems even creating a large cluster, without purchasing any hardware or software by paying AWS based on your consumption.
In many of the videos, we're using Ubuntu Linux Server to run Docker. We downloaded Ubuntu Linux Server from ubunutu.com as you see here. It's freely available and we used the latest LTS version which stands for Long Term Support. We deployed Linux into VMware Fusion in a virtual machine on a Mac desktop, but any virtualization hypervisor would allow you to run Linux and perform the same tasks that we do in the video. For example: Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware Workstation, VMware vSphere, or Oracle Virtual Box.
There's a free evaluation of VMware Fusion on the VMware website. In the course, we'll download software from docker.com, specifically The Docker Store. The Docker community edition will allow you to perform most of the tasks that we cover in the course, however, for specific videos where we use the Enterprise Edition features, such as universal control plane, a 30 day Docker Enterprise Edition license can be obtained from docker.com to run Docker in your own environment.
When we did use VMware Fusion to run Ubuntu Virtual Machines we assigned each virtual machine two virtual CPUs and two gigabytes of virtual memory to perform the tasks that we showed in the videos. If you've never set up a virtual machine before, we'll do that next.
