Docker Machine is a tool that let us install Docker Engine on virtual hosts on various platforms, on local environment as well on cloud. With Docker Machine, we can easily install docker hosts a Windows machine, a MAC machine or on cloud platform like AWS, AZURE etc. As we know that Docker Engine runs natively on Linux machines, so its pretty easy to get Docker working on Linux machines but for other OS like MAC or Windows this was a problem. So Docker Machine was introduced, especially for older versions of MAC & Windows (there are new native Docker apps for latest OS). Not meant only for Windows or MAC, Docker machine also provides efficient way to provision multiple Docker hosts on local as well as cloud network. To manage the docker hosts, we use rather than using ???docker??? command, which is used with docker engine. In this tutorial, we will discuss how we can create & manage docker hosts with Docker Machine on VirtualBox.
