Docker Desktop for Mac includes a standalone Kubernetes server and client, as well as Docker CLI integration. The Kubernetes server runs locally within the Docker instance, is not configurable, and is a single-node cluster. The Kubernetes server runs within a Docker container on your local system, and is only for local testing. When Kubernetes support is enabled, you can deploy your workloads, in parallel, on Kubernetes, Swarm, and as standalone containers. Enabling or disabling the Kubernetes server does not affect your other workloads.
