Docker makes it easier to create, deploy, and run applications by using containers, and containers allow a developer to package up an application with all of the components it needs, such as libraries, web server / application server, any other dependencies, application build and ship it all out as one package. By doing so, the developer can be assured that the application will run on any other server.
Running applications in containers instead of virtual machines is gaining momentum in the Information Technology vertical. The technology is considered to be one of the fastest growing in the industry and the core is Docker, a platform that allows users to easily pack, distribute, and manage applications within containers. Docker is an open-source project that automates the deployment of applications inside software containers.
