About the Machine category

Machine lets you create Docker hosts on your computer, on cloud providers, and inside your own data center. It creates servers, installs Docker on them, then configures the Docker client to talk to them.

Once your Docker host has been created, it then has a number of commands for managing them:

  • Starting, stopping, restarting
  • Upgrading Docker
  • Configuring the Docker client to talk to your host

Note: Machine is currently in beta, so things are likely to change. We don’t recommend you use it in production yet.
