Is there a replacement for docker swarm on Rocky Linux 8?

by ,

We have by far the largest RPM repository with NGINX module packages and VMODs for Varnish. If you want to install NGINX, Varnish, and lots of useful performance/security software with smooth yum upgrades for production use, this is the repository for you.
Active subscription is required.

Operating System and Software

  • Rocky Linux 8


  • Would like to use docker swarm on Rocky Linux 8, but docker is not available.
  • What orchestration tool can one use in pace of docker swarm on Rocky Linux 8?

How to Fix

  • The only container orchestration platform supported by Red Hat is OpenShift Container Platform.
    • docker swarm was unsupported on CentOS 7, and remains unsupported on Rocky Linux 8 due to the fact that Red Hat does not ship or support the docker container runtime on Rocky Linux 8.
    • podman does not replace or replicate the swarm functionality.
