How Do I Launch The AeroFS Appliance With Docker?

There are two ways to launch the AeroFS Appliance using Docker:

Method 1: For Linux Machines

If you are installing the Appliance on a Linux machine, use the aerofs-docker.sh script to launch the Appliance. After approximately 15 minutes, it will print Running on http://0.0.0.0:80

Once you point your Web browser to your machine's IP address, begin setting up your appliance.

Method 2: For Users with a Public Cloud Hosting Platform

The second is if you are using a public cloud hosting platform (i.e. Digital Ocean, AWS, Azure, etc.) running CoreOS. It allows you to deploy AeroFS in one cick and uses this cloud-config file. For example, if you are using Digital Ocean, set-up using these steps:

  1. Create a Droplet and give it a name.
  2. Select the CoreOS image of your choice.
  3. Paste the cloud-config file.
  4. Point your browser to the droplet's IP address to initalize the system
  5. Watch AeroFS get installed!

After installation, a web interface should be available at http://<ip> with which you can begin setting up your appliance.
