MCR Deployment Guide


In correlation with the end of life (EOL) date for MCR 19.03.8+, Mirantis stopped maintaining this documentation version as of 2022-05-27. The latest MCR product documentation is available here.

Mirantis Container Runtime (MCR) is a client-server application with these major components:

  • A server which is a type of long-running program called a daemon process (the dockerd command).

  • A REST API which specifies interfaces that programs can use to talk to the daemon and instruct it what to do.

  • A command line interface (CLI) client (the docker command).

MCR can be installed on several Linux distros as well as on Windows.
