Options to use latest docker on centos 6?
I would like to try new features in latest version of docker (1.10 for now), like “docker networks” and “docker volume”.
I have CentOs 6 and I CAN NOT upgrade OS due to some restrictions (understand I can use latest docker in centos 7). I do have root permission.
I am wondering what’s the options I have to try latest docker?

You can try to use a static binary to run docker, but this is all at your own risk; CentOS 6 runs on kernel 2.6, which is 13 years old now. That kernel misses various things needed to run Docker (e.g. Overlay networking is not supported), and is known for having some issues.
Note that running docker-in-docker may get you around “installing” docker 1.10, but will still run on the same kernel, so you’ll end up with the same issues
You could install
docker-machine and run
docker-machine upgrade default
As described here
