Portainer runs as a lightweight Docker container (the Docker image weights 3MB) on a Docker engine or Swarm cluster. Therefore, you are one command away from running container on any machine using Docker.
Use the following Docker command to run Portainer:
You'll just need to access the port 9000 of the Docker engine where portainer is running using your browser.
docker run -d -p 9000:9000 portainer/portainer
Deploying Portainer to manage a Swarm cluster is just as easy ! You just need to know that you must point Portainer at a manager node when connecting to a cluster created with Docker swarm mode.
docker run -d -p 9000:9000 portainer/portainer -H tcp://SWARM_MANAGER_IP:2375
