About Docker

Docker is an open platform for building, shipping and running distributed applications. It gives programmers, development teams and operations engineers the common toolbox they need to take advantage of the distributed and networked nature of modern applications.

  • Build: Docker allows you to compose your application from microservices without worrying about inconsistencies between development and production environments and without locking into any platform or language
  • Ship: Docker lets you design the entire lifecycle of application development, testing, deployment and manage it with a consistent user interface
  • Run: Docker allows you to deploy scalable services, securely and reliably on any platform locally, in a private data center or cloud provider

By deploying Docker into their application environments, organizations have been able to on average ship 7 times more software, gain application portability across infrastructures and easily change and scale their applications.
