Short Description
The Docker Registry 2.0 implementation for storing and distributing Docker images
Full Description

Supported tags and respective Dockerfile links

For more information about this image and its history, please see the relevant manifest file (library/registry). This image is updated via pull requests to the docker-library/official-images GitHub repo.

For detailed information about the virtual/transfer sizes and individual layers of each of the above supported tags, please see the repos/registry/ file in the docker-library/repo-info GitHub repo.

Docker Registry

This image contains an implementation of the Docker Registry HTTP API V2 for use with Docker 1.6+. See for more details about what it is.

Run a local registry: Quick Version

$ docker run -d -p 5000:5000 --restart always --name registry registry:2

Now, use it from within Docker:

$ docker pull ubuntu
$ docker tag ubuntu localhost:5000/ubuntu
$ docker push localhost:5000/ubuntu

Recommended Reading

The documentation over at is a good place to learn more about what the registry is, how it works, and how to use it.

Specifically, the section regarding deployment has pointers for more complex use cases than simply running a registry on localhost.


If you are interested in commercial support, the Docker Trusted Registry provides an image registry, LDAP/Active Directory integration, security certificates, and more in a solution that includes commercial support.

Supported Docker versions

This image is officially supported on Docker version 17.03.0-ce.

Support for older versions (down to 1.6) is provided on a best-effort basis.

Please see the Docker installation documentation for details on how to upgrade your Docker daemon.
