Oracle VM VirtualBox: Zero to Docker Sandbox in 2 Minutes!

Simon Coter
Senior Manager, Oracle Linux and Virtualization Product Management

Are you ready to follow a two hours video that teach how-to install Docker on a Linux machine ?

I'm just kidding, obviously.....but you can find more guides, videos or how-to that require a lot of time to get Docker ready-to-run on your own machine.

....and all those steps are also error prone!!!!

And this is why, today, I'm going to share with you this great and funny video where Sergio Leunissen, Vice President at Oracle for Linux and Virtualization, demonstrates how-to get an Oracle Linux 7 Docker Sandbox ready-to-run in 2 minutes!!!!!

It does not matter which OS you run on your machine....same steps apply to Microsoft Windows, Linux or MacOS.

Feel free to leave your comments and/or feedback here!

    more than hour .. error, error, error
    I passed:
    1. powershell upgrade
    2. clean Vagrantfile (Your has some semantic errors"
    3. trying enebled VT-x for all CPU modes...

    Your video is like a TV commercial :) But dev-life-reality is like endless pain.

    Hi Slawomires,

    you are right, on my old machine it takes 4 minutes from scratch to get OL7 up&running with Docker ready:


    Obviously I'm just kidding....the entire process takes 4 minutes but the interaction takes not more than 10 seconds; at the end you only need to execute two commands:

    # vagrant up
    # vagrant ssh


    ps: with higher bandwidth and modern laptop/desktop it should get done in ~2 minutes.

    Ah, I forgot to mention that you should check what we have on GitHub at:


    That is the starting point I've used in the video.
