By definition “Docker is an open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications”. It allows you to create containerized apps that offers modularity and decoupling for your application components. Each container is separated from each other and contains its own set of tools, libraries and configuration. They can talk to each other through well defined channels.

The podman container engine replaced docker as the preferred, maintained, and supported container runtime of choice for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 systems. Podman provides a docker compatible command line experience enabling users to find, run, build, and share containers. Podman uses Buildah and Skopeo as libraries for the build and push. Click Download update When you are ready to download the update. This downloads the update in the background. After downloading the update, click Update and restart from the Docker menu. This installs the latest update and restarts Docker Desktop for the changes to take effect.

A typical example could be, one container runs web server and web application, second container with API and third runs a database server which is used by API server.

Docker uses host operating kernel and thus is more lightweight than virtual machines. It also doesn’t require you to pre-allocate any resources.

The Enterprise Edition is the default and recommended edition. It includes all the features of the OSS Edition, can be used for free and can be upgraded to the full Enterprise feature set, including support for Enterprise plugins.

It runs on both Linux and Windows.

Windows 10 (Professional and above) and Windows Server 2016 have native support for Docker with Hyper-V containers. If you have any older version then you can install Docker Toolbox which uses Oracle Virtual Box instead of Hyper-V.

Docker for Windows is the best way to get started with Docker on Windows. It is a community edition of Docker for Microsoft Windows.

Docker enterprise edition download 64-bit

Lets get started with step by step installation.

Professional edition

Download the setup

Download the setup from docker store.

You have create an account or login with your credentials if you have already registered. You can download the setup (.exe) after login.

Run the installer

The setup asks to add shortcut to desktop. Lets keep it checked.
Another option you are presented that ask whether you want to use Windows containers instead of Linux containers. As it suggests this can be changed later. Lets leave it unchecked.

Continue with the setup

Sign-out and Sign-in

At the end of the setup it will ask you to log off and login. It will close all your running applications and log off from your current session.

Docker service startup

Once you sign-in you will notice an animated docker icon in the system tray. The animation will stop once the service is completely up and running.

If everything is fine you would be greeted with a Windows 10 notification

You can login with the same account created for docker store.

Checking docker installation from command prompt

If docker service is up and running then you can invoke any docker command from Windows command prompt and it should respond.
Open command prompt and enter following command

it should return the docker version installed

Woohoo! We just installed docker on Windows 10 and it is up and running.

Windows Server 2019 is the next long-term support release of Windows Server, and it's available now! It comes with some very useful improvements to running Docker Windows containers - which Docker Captain Stefan Scherer has already summarized in his blog post What's new for Docker on Windows Server 2019.

UPDATE: the second edition of my book Docker on Windows is out now. It focuses entirely on Windows Server 2019

You need Windows Server to run 'pure' Docker containers, where the container process runs directly on the host OS. You can use the same Docker images, the same Dockerfiles and the same docker commands on Windows 10, but there's an additional virtualization overhead, so it's good to use a Windows Server VM for test environments.

On Windows 10 Docker Desktop is the easiest way to get started

If you want to check out the newest version of Windows Server and get running Docker containers, here's what you need to do.

Get Windows Server 2019

You can download the ISO to install Windows Server 2019 now, from your Visual Studio subscription if you have one, or a 180-day evaluation version if you don't. VMs with Windows Server 2019 already deployed will be available on Azure shortly.

The installation procedure for 2019 is the same as previous Windows Server versions - boot a VM from the ISO and the setup starts. I prefer the core installation with no GUI:

I installed Server 2019 onto a Hyper-V VM running on my Windows 10 machine, with the VM disks stored on an external SSD drive. The setup finished in a few minutes, and it runs very quickly - even with just 4GB RAM allocated.

You can also upgrade from previous Windows Server versions to 2019 using the ISO.

Connect to the Server

When you RDP into a Windows Server Core machine you just see a command prompt. The first time you connect you'll need to set the password for the default Administrator account. Then I like to set PowerShell as the default command shell, so whenever you RDP you get into a PowerShell session:

Configure Windows Features

To run containers you need to enable the Containers feature, and for a non-production VM I also disable Windows Defender to stop it burning CPU cycles. You'll need to reboot after these steps:

Configure Windows Updates

You'll want to make sure you have the latest updates, but then I disable automatic updates so I only get future updates when I want them. There's no GUI in Windows Server Core, so run sconfig and then select:

  • option 5, to set Windows Updates to manual

  • option 7, to enable Remote Desktop Access to the server

  • option 6, to download and install all updates

Then you're ready to install Docker.

Install Docker on Window Server 2019

Windows Server licensing includes the licence cost for Docker Enterprise, so you can run the enterprise edition with production support for containers from Microsoft and Docker.

The latest Docker Enterprise engine is version 19.03 18.03, which you can explicitly install with PowerShell:

This sets up Docker as a Windows Service, which you need to start:

Pull the Windows Base Images

Any Docker containers you run on Windows Server 2019 will be based on Windows Server Core or Nano Server. You'll need both those images, and be aware that the base images are now hosted on Microsoft's container registry, MCR:

These images are tiny compared to the Windows Server 2016 versions. Windows Server Core has shrunk from over 10GB to a 1.5GB download, and Nano Server has shrunk from over 1GB to a 90MB download!

[Optional] Pull the .NET Core Images

The .NET Core team released versions of their SDK and runtime images as soon as Windows Server 2019 launched. You can pull those now and start running your .NET Core apps in 2019 (there are also .NET Framework SDK and ASP.NET images available - hopefully SQL Server will get some attention soon...)

The upstream Docker images are still listed on Docker Hub, so that's where you go for discovery - but they get served from Microsoft's own image registry, MCR.

Try it Out!

What Is Enterprise Edition

I've pushed an updated version of my .NET Core whoami image, so you can try out ASP.NET Core 3.0 running in Windows Server Core 2019 containers:

One of the enhancements for Docker in Windows Server 2019 is that loopback addresses now work, so you can visit this container using localhost on the server, and using the same published port from an external machine:

And in Swarm Mode...

I'll post a longer explanation of what you can do with Docker in Windows Server 2019 that you couldn't do in Windows Server 2016, but here's just one other thing: Windows Server 2019 now supports ingress networking for Docker swarm mode. That means you can run multiple containers on one server, all listening on the same port, and Docker will load-balance incoming requests between the containers.

I have lots more detail on this in my Pluralsight course Managing Load Balancing and Scale in Docker Swarm Mode Clusters

Switch your server to a single-node swarm:

Now deploy the whoami app as a swarm service, with multiple replicas and a published port:

Now when you browse to the VM from outside, Docker will load-balance requests across the five containers which are hosting the service:

Windows Server 2019 is an evolution to the container functionality you get with Docker. Windows Server 2016 is still perfectly fine for production, but 2019 brings Windows containers much closer to feature parity with Linux containers, and smooths over some things which are tricky in 2016.

And the next big thing is Windows support in Kubernetes, which is expected to GA before the end of the year :) went GA this year. Windows containers are now supported in mixed Linux-Windows Kubernetes clusters - find out more from my post Getting Started with Kubernetes on Windows.
