Updates September 2016, 2018 Boot2Docker has been replaced by Docker for Mac

To those on OSX or Windows: Don’t let a slow experience give you an impression that Docker isn’t enterprise-grade!

  1. Docker is amazing, fast, and flexible.
  2. Prior tools, boot2docker particularly, were slow and prone to crash.

Docker can currently run natively on a Linux Kernel v3.4+ - and the current boot2docker vm actually runs v4.

Best use of your hardware: Install the Latest Debian or Ubuntu on your Mac/Windows box,

… c’mon those games aren’t helping your code…

Check your setup

Review the output of docker info command.

  1. Security: Check the server for unexpectedly open ports (with nmap from a remote network)
  2. DNS: Use a local cache or low-latency DNS server.
  3. Storage: Use the correct storage driver (overlay2 is likely)
