docker-machine create

Starting a single docker host using Boot2Docker ubuntu image is quite easy.

docker-machine create standAloneHost --virtualbox-cpu-count 2 --virtualbox-memory 1024

This will automaticly start a VM and install the release version of docker, The new machine standAloneHost runs like the version installed locally.

sudo docker run -it v8geekzoo/starwars
sudo docker-machine rm standAloneHost
