You can test ManageIQ running in a Docker container using the images that the ManageIQ project makes available on the Docker Hub. This is a great option if you have a Linux PC (but it works everywhere Docker is available).
If you are on Linux, make sure the Docker service is running:
$ sudo service docker start
Step 1: Download and deploy the appliance
Pull the ManageIQ docker image:
$ sudo docker pull manageiq/manageiq:hammer-8
Step 2: Run the container
$ sudo docker run -d -p 8443:443 manageiq/manageiq:hammer-8
ManageIQ is now up and running.
Next step is to perform some basic configuration.
