List of virtual machines for running Docker


(Whitea) #1

I am looking for a list of virtual machines where I could run Docker. For now I found VirtualBox, Hyper-V and VMware. Anything else

Docker has usually been a container tech option and a compliment to virtualization rather than replacing variant. And the license prices start quite high (VMware vSphere, for example, a standard one starts at $995). But mostly, it’s practical and indeed one of the best options. You may look at the thread on Stackoverflow Understanding virtual machines in docker essay writer for hire. There are drivers mentioned as well. (answered by Gonzalo Matheu).

At my workplace we run Docker on Xen. Works well for us.
