    Container import to vSphere 6?

    stanj Hot Shot



      Not sure I am in the right place to ask,,but here goes.


      We have vSphere 6 Essentials license with vCenter.


      We received a request from a contractor that they have a container  (VM?) that they would like to install it our vSphere environment for a project..


      I am not sure what we need to install and setup in order to bring in their container and get it up and ruining?


      Any help will be appreciated.

          Sounds like the Contractor needs to provide a little more details/documentation....I'd assume the contactor has the container in a repository somewhere, knowing that would probably be the first step to working out how to install it.


          I've only been playing around with this stuff for a few hours over the last couple of weekends but I found the below helpful in getting my head around this stuff.


          Assuming its a Docker Container then Docker Engine:

          1. Project Photon if you want to give it a try  Photon OS™ by VMware®

          2. Docker Engine if you want to run it on Prod, given Photon is a Tech Preview (Check out the Docker Docs link -> Install -> Docker Engine -> Linux etc ) Docker Docs
