Docker Tutorial 9 – Docker Machine

This is a casual Docker tutorial series. We started out first with very simple sessions on how to install and use the docker run command. In future videos we will hit more advanced topics.   This ninth video talks about Docker Machine. We will cover basic installation and show how to create docker hosts on Virtualbox, Digital Ocean and Amazon’s EC2.

Running Docker on Digital Ocean with Ubuntu

Originally published at I recently wrote a post on how to get Docker up and running on Rackspace and since then I have received some requests on how to get it up and running on other hosts. One of those hosts is Digital Ocean a hot new Cloud hosting provider that offers a 512MB 20GB SSD VPS for only $5.00 / month. A really great deal, and also a great price if you want to play around with some new tool and not have to worry about possibly breaking a production server. This post should guide you though the process of getting an Ubuntu 12.04 and 13.04 VPS up and running with Docker.
