Step 2: Install Docker on the VM. In order to install the Rancher server as a Docker container, you first need to install Docker itself. There are a couple of options for installing Docker -refer to the official Docker documentation about how to install Docker on Linux, as the steps will vary based on the Linux distribution.
- How To Manage Multi-Node Deployments with Rancher and Docker: Rancher is an open source project that provides a complete platform for operating.
- Rancher is deployed as a set of Docker containers. Running Rancher is a simple as launching two containers. One container as the management server and another container on a node as an agent. Any modern Linux distribution that supports Docker 1.10.3. RancherOS, Ubuntu, RHEL/CentOS 7 are more heavily tested.
- The Docker install allows you to explore the Rancher server functionality, but it is intended to be used for development and testing purposes only. Our instructions for installing Rancher on Kubernetes describe how to first use K3s or RKE to create and manage a Kubernetes cluster, then install Rancher onto that cluster.

Coupled Container Management
Container management to build, push, and pull images and run containers. It uses the same container runtime as Kubernetes. Built images are immediately available to use in your local workloads without any pushing, pulling, or copying.
How it Works
Rancher Desktop is an electron based application that wraps other tools while itself providing the user experience to create a simple experience.On MacOS Rancher Desktop leverages a virtual machine to run containerd and Kubernetes. Windows Subsystem for Linux v2 is leveraged for Windows systems.All you need to do is download and run the application.
