# Installation - Docker
# GridDB Server Container
To run GridDB server, you can simply pull from Dockerhub
$ docker network create griddb-net
$ docker pull griddbnet/griddb
We first create a Docker network to allow our application container to easily communicate with our GridDB container.
Now run your GridDB server:
$ docker run --network griddb-net --name griddb-server -d -t griddbnet/griddb
# Nodejs Application Container
As an example of using GridDB with an application in a docker container, we have prepared here a node.js application container which communicates directly with the griddb-server container.
You can build the image and then run pretty easily:
$ docker pull griddbnet/griddb-react-crud
$ docker run --network griddb-net --name griddbnet/griddb-react-crud -p 2828:2828 -d -t griddbnet/griddb-react-crud
And now if you navigate to
http://localhost:2828 you will the see full app running.
If you're curious as to how these containers work, you can read this [blog] (https://griddb.net/en/blog/improve-your-devops-with-griddb-server-and-client-docker-containers/).

# Next Steps
Once you have GridDB running on your machine you can verify by running
docker ps. To dig further, you can run a gs_stat on your running GridDB Server container:
$ docker exec -it griddb-server gs_stat -u admin/admin
Using the format above, you can run any commands against your GridDB container. If you want to drop into the bash shell of your GridDB container:
$ docker exec -it griddb-server /bin/bash
You can also drop directly into the GridDB CLI (GridDB Shell) like so:
$ docker exec -it griddb-server gs_sh
