Build, Ship, and Run in Docker

Dubbed as “lightweight virtualization”, Docker encapsulates your software and its dependencies into a single isolated container, making it easier to deploy several distributed applications at once across machines of different configurations. In short, you code once and deploy many times over. Show More

A Quick Look at Docker

Immutable Infrastructure: Predictability, version control, and faster rollbacks are some of the perks of immutability. Also Isolation of applications prevents you from spending precious time fixing broken servers than replacing them.

Version Tracking: Add new versions, rollback to previous ones, track successive versions, and check difference between versions. Docker also records who and how a container is assembled, leading to full traceability.

Reusable Components: Docker consolidates common components as ‘base images’, which can be reused for future applications. More specialized images can be built/stacked manually or through automated build above the base image.

Security: Docker inherits default Linux containers features such as namespaces, cgroups, and restricted Linux kernel capabilities. Docker host can also be hardened through GRSEC, PAX, and SELinux module.

Portable Deployment: Besides process sandboxing, Docker bundles application and dependencies into a single transferable object that can be quickly installed to create the same environment in any docker-enabled machine.

Resource Utilization: Use many more containers on a single host system than hosting virtual machines (VMs). Docker shares the kernel of the host system with other containers while not imitating the host system OS.

Platform Agnostic: Docker leans on the principle of absent infrastructure dependencies. The layered container works across various operating systems, QA servers, and production data centers with one-time configuration.

Performance: Docker consumes less hardware resources than virtual machines because of the absence of hypervisor. It is easier and faster to spun Docker images and run multiple containers on the same host.

What are the benefits of Docker?

  • Isolation of applications and services
  • Small footprint and minimum overhead
  • Reduced IT infrastructure cost
  • Flexibility due to version control
  • Easy transfers across machines or clouds

Think Docker When You...

  • Build your own PaaS
  • Deliver software solutions as micro services
  • Adopt continuous integration and delivery
  • Decouple infrastructure from application
  • Create multi-tenant applications
