Oracle Container Runtime for Docker on Oracle Linux for ARM

Avi Miller
Senior Solutions Architect

We are pleased to announce the availability of the Oracle Container Runtime for Docker for the ARM64 architecture. To install, simply run the following command:

# yum install docker-engine

We are also pleased to announce that the official Oracle Linux image on the Docker Hub has been updated to support both the x86_64 and ARM64 architectures. To pull the latest Oracle Linux 7 base image from the Docker Hub, you can run:

# docker pull oraclelinux:7-slim

And Docker will automatically pull the correct image for your architecture. We recommend using the 7-slim tag as it provides the smallest possible Oracle Linux 7 base image and is used by all of the Oracle product images published in our Docker Images repository on GitHub, however we also provide the latest, 7 and 7.4 tags if you prefer:

oraclelinux       7        b5e0e6470f16   2 hours ago 279MB 
oraclelinux       7.4      b5e0e6470f16   2 hours ago 279MB 
oraclelinux       latest   b5e0e6470f16   2 hours ago 279MB 
oraclelinux       7-slim   fdaeac435bbd   2 hours ago 146MB

Note that there are no Oracle product images available for the ARM64 architecture yet.


Oracle Linux for ARM is provided as a developer preview and is not covered by Oracle Linux support. If you have any issues, community support is available on in the Oracle Linux for ARM space on the Oracle Technology Network.
