Docker is a PaaS "Platform as a Service" product that uses OS-level virtualization technology to deploy software in relatively small packages called containers that are completely isolated, have their own software, libraries, and even network. Exasol supports Docker as a platform and you can easily obtain our image via Github or Docker Hub. This tutorial below will show you how to install Docker on Ubuntu and other Debian-based systems (however, the installed repo will vary).
NOTE: This method was tested on Ubuntu Server 18.04 (Bionic Beaver) and 20.04 ( Focal Fossa)
$ docker run hello-world
Hello from Docker!
This message shows that your installation appears to be working correctly.
To generate this message, Docker took the following steps:
1. The Docker client contacted the Docker daemon.
2. The Docker daemon pulled the "hello-world" image from the Docker Hub.
3. The Docker daemon created a new container from that image which runs the
executable that produces the output you are currently reading.
4. The Docker daemon streamed that output to the Docker client, which sent it
to your terminal.
