Why do we use Docker Machine?

There are two main uses of Docker Machine:

  • Old Desktop: If we have an old desktop and we want to run Docker then we use Docker Machine to run Docker. It is like installing a virtual machine on an old hardware system to run Docker engine.
  • Remote Hosts: Docker Machine is also used to provision Docker hosts on remote systems. By using Docker Machine you can install Docker Engine on remote hosts and configure clients on them.
