Required for both the node and server
Docker facilitates encapsulation of applications and their dependencies in packages that can be easily distributed to diverse systems. Algorithms are stored in Docker images which nodes can download and execute. Besides the algorithms, both the node and server are also running from a docker container themselves.
Please refer to this page on how to install Docker. To verify that Docker is installed and running you can run the hello-world example from Docker.
docker run hello-world
🐳 Always make sure that Docker is running while using vantage6!
🐳 We recommend to always use the latest version of Docker.
Note that for Linux, some post-installation steps may be required. Vantage6 needs to be able to run docker without sudo, and these steps ensure just that.
