#install google cloud SDK $curl https://dl.google.com/dl/cloudsdk/release/install_google_cloud_sdk.bash | bash
At this point, you should have a google account, google compute engine account with at least one project inside. You need a project ID to log in to it. Now you are able to log in and create the first VM instance in this project.
gcloud auth login # follow command line instructions. gcutil addinstance docker-playground --image=backports-debian-7 #This creates and starts first VM names docker-playground.
When the instance is created wait a second and you will be able to login per SSH. Use the instance name chosen above.
gcutil ssh docker-playground
Then install docker by download and run.
curl get.docker.io | bash # install docker sudo update-rc.d docker defaults # configure docker
Then add your current user to group docker to be able to use all docker functions as “current user”.
sudo usermod -aG docker `whoami`
Restart docker service.
sudo service docker restart
I got a test amount of 1000$ for the google compute engine and therefore will do further experiments with that platform and docker.
