Description

Docker is an open-source engine that automates the deployment of any application as a lightweight, portable, self-sufficient container that will run virtually anywhere.

Docker containers can encapsulate any payload, and will run consistently on and between virtually any server. The same container that a developer builds and tests on a laptop will run at scale, in production*, on VMs, bare-metal servers, OpenStack clusters, public instances, or combinations of the above.

Common use cases for Docker include:

• Automating the packaging and deployment of applications
• Creation of lightweight, private PAAS environments
• Automated testing and continuous integration/deployment
• Deploying and scaling web apps, databases and backend services

Docker is available as Community Edition (CE) for free and an Enterprise Edition (EE) subscription with software, support and certification.

Docker is sorta like portable software, but think of it like making your entire development environment (your framework and all dependent libraries, web/database servers, even the OS) portable....
