Portainer -- Revisited

A previous post described how to run portainer on z. Starting today, s390x support is part of their Docker Hub image. This makes the task a bit easier. Enter
docker run -d -p 9000:9000 -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock -v /opt/portainer:/data portainer/portainer
and point your browser to port 9000. Done.
Kudos to the team for integrating s390x support so quickly!
