Docker Trusted Registry system requirements

Estimated reading time: 1 minute

Docker Trusted Registry can be installed on-premises or on the cloud. Before installing, be sure your infrastructure has these requirements.

Hardware and Software requirements

You can install DTR on-premises or on a cloud provider. To install DTR, all nodes must:

  • Be a worker node managed by UCP (Universal Control Plane). See Compatibility Matrix for version compatibility.
  • Have a fixed hostname.

Minimum requirements

  • 16GB of RAM for nodes running DTR
  • 2 vCPUs for nodes running DTR
  • 10GB of free disk space
  • 16GB of RAM for nodes running DTR
  • 4 vCPUs for nodes running DTR
  • 25-100GB of free disk space

Note that Windows container images are typically larger than Linux ones and for this reason, you should consider provisioning more local storage for Windows nodes and for DTR setups that will store Windows container images.

Ports used

When installing DTR on a node, make sure the following ports are open on that node:

Direction Port Purpose
in 80/tcp Web app and API client access to DTR.
in 443/tcp Web app and API client access to DTR.

These ports are configurable when installing DTR.
