Portainer runs as a lightweight Docker container (the Docker image weights less than 4MB) 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 can directly deploy Portainer as a service in your Docker cluster.
docker service create \ --name portainer \ --publish 9000:9000 \ --constraint 'node.role == manager' \ --mount type=bind,src=//var/run/docker.sock,dst=/var/run/docker.sock \ portainer/portainer \ -H unix:///var/run/docker.sock
