    OL 7 with Docker Enterprise or Community Edition?




      I recently discovered that docker version 17 and later are either CE or EE. According to https://blog.docker.com/2017/03/docker-enterprise-edition/ RHEL 7 supports only EE. Enterprise edition ships with a trail period, after which I'm technically required to pay for a subscription.


      Then I found https://blogs.oracle.com/virtualization/install-docker-on-oracle-linux-7-v2  showing the install of 17.03.1.ce


      What does Oracle Linux ship or support when I'm running yum install docker in OL 7.6?


      The command docker version shows me 18.09.1-ol. It also shows Docker Engine - Community.

      As well as docker info which shows Product License: Community Engine

      So if I'm interpreting correctly, it's installing CE (Community Edition) which does not require to pay for a subscription.


      I think that's great, meaning I don't have to pay for docker. I suppose I don't need EE.


      Docker info also shows me that it's using BTRFS. My understanding is that RHEL 7 dropped support for BTRFS.

      Is BTRFS a requirement for CE, or is it OL edition?
