# Alternative for Docker Desktop on Mac

Docker Desktop on Mac consumes a lot of CPU and very slow. You can use docker-machine with parallels driver.

  • Buy Parallels Desktop Pro license.

  • Install docker-machine-parallels:

    brew install docker-machine-parallels
  • Create docker-machine:

    docker-machine create -d parallels prl --parallels-memory=6G --parallels-cpu-count=4 docker-machine env prl eval $(
    docker-machine env prl)
    • Check if it works:

      docker-compose ps

Configure Jetbrains IDE (RubyMine, Idea, etc):

  • Open Docker -> Tools, fill Docker Machine Executable with /usr/local/bin/docker-machine.
  • Open Docker, and switch to Docker Machine.
