Docker registries provide a powerful way to manage and distribute your Docker images. Docker offers a free registry at Docker Hub, but in many scenarios, you may want greater control of your images, not to mention that it is not free to have more than one private repository on Docker Hub. Fortunately, you can build and manage your own private registries, allowing you full control over where your images are housed and how they can be accessed.

In this lab, you will have the opportunity to work with a private registry. You will build your own private registry, and you will have a chance to practice some advanced setup to ensure that your private registry is secure. After completing this lab, you will know how to set up a simple but secure private Docker registry.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
