What is docker-machine
Docker Machine is a tool that makes it easy to provision and manage multiple Docker hosts remotely from your local computer. With Docker Machine, you can create Docker hosts on your local machine, on cloud providers like AWS and Azure, and virtualization platforms like VirtualBox and VMware.
Docker Machine automates the process of setting up and configuring Docker hosts, so you can quickly and easily create new Docker hosts and deploy applications on them. This can save you much time and effort compared to manually setting up and configuring Docker hosts.
Docker Machine is a command-line tool, and it is typically used in conjunction with other command-line tools like Docker Compose and the Docker command. Together, these tools form the core of the Docker platform, which provides a complete environment for developing, deploying, and running Docker applications.
Docker Machine is included in the Docker installation, so if you have Docker installed on your system, you should already have Docker Machine available as well.
