QuickStart with Container-optimized Google Compute Engine images

  1. Go to Google Cloud Console and create a new Cloud Project with Compute Engine enabled

  2. Download and configure the Google Cloud SDK to use your project with the following commands:

    $ curl https://sdk.cloud.google.com | bash
    $ gcloud auth login
    $ gcloud config set project <google-cloud-project-id>
    
  3. Start a new instance using the latest Container-optimized image: (select a zone close to you and the desired instance size)

    $ gcloud compute instances create docker-playground \
      --image https://www.googleapis.com/compute/v1/projects/google-containers/global/images/container-vm-v20140522 \
      --zone us-central1-a \
      --machine-type f1-micro
    
  4. Connect to the instance using SSH:

    $ gcloud compute ssh --zone us-central1-a docker-playground
    docker-playground:~$ sudo docker run busybox echo 'docker on GCE \o/'
    docker on GCE \o/
