Deploy Portainer in Docker

Portainer is an Open-Source lightweight Management UI which allows you to easily manage your Docker Hosts or Swarm Clusters

  • Port 9000 of the container is published to the host
  • A 16 megabyte limit is set on the container, in this instance.
  • Data is persisted in a named volume called ‘portainer_data’
docker run -d \
  --name portainer \
  --restart=unless-stopped \
  --memory=16m \
  -p 9000:9000 \
  -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
  -v portainer_data:/data \
  portainer/portainer

The container can also be deployed using the more explicit –mount flag which became available for standalone containers in Docker 17.06.

docker run -d \
  --name portainer \
  --restart=always \
  --memory=16m \
  -p 9000:9000 \
  -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
  --mount source=portainer_data,destination=/data \
  portainer/portainer
