Portainer, an easier way for managing docker containers

By Posted in - Blog on December 31st, 2016 0 Comments

Kubernetes and its lite version – Minikube – are the traditional way of managing a group of docker containers.

They are not intuitive and it takes a while to feel comfortable using them.

Kubernetes may still be an option for large clusters, distributed across multiple datacenters, but for less complex situations, a new alternative exists – portainer.

Here is a tutorial.

If you’re on Linux and have docker installed, then all you’d need to do is:

docker run -d -p 9000:9000 –name=portainer -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock portainer/portainer

The image is about 9Mb, is very fast and the functionality is intuitive to use.
