MCR Deployment GuideΒΆ

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.
