ECE 1.0                        

Supported Docker and Linux Kernel versions:
ECE requires Docker version 1.11. While it may work with other Docker versions, it is known to break with certain combinations of Docker and kernel version, and has not been thoroughly
tested with any Docker version other than 1.11.
ECE requires Linux kernel version 3.10 or higher.
ECE requires kernel memory accounting to be disabled for all memory cgroups. Disable it by passing `cgroup.memory=nokmem` to the kernel at boot time.
**Zip/tar.gz archives only. RPM installation is not supported on SLES 11.
