Installing docker on Ubuntu using snap

I just created an AWS EC2 instance with Ubuntu 18.04, let us install docker using snap install docker

root@ubuntu-askdevops:~# snap install docker
docker 18.06.1-ce from Canonical installed

Docker just got installed in my new AWS EC2 Ubuntu server!

root@ubuntu-askdevops:~# docker --version
Docker version 18.06.1-ce, build e68fc7a

Testing Docker installation with Hello-World!

Let us run the flashy docker run hello-world

root@ubuntu-askdevops:~# docker run hello-world
Unable to find image 'hello-world:latest' locally
latest: Pulling from library/hello-world

Status: Downloaded newer image for hello-world:latest

Hello from Docker!
This message shows that your installation appears to be working correctly.

To generate this message, Docker took the following steps:
 1. The Docker client contacted the Docker daemon.
 2. The Docker daemon pulled the "hello-world" image from the Docker Hub.
 3. The Docker daemon created a new container from that image which runs the
    executable that produces the output you are currently reading.
 4. The Docker daemon streamed that output to the Docker client, which sent it
    to your terminal.

To try something more ambitious, you can run an Ubuntu container with:
 $ docker run -it ubuntu bash
