What is Docker Container?
Docker is a technology designed to simplify the process of creating, deploying, distributing and running apps in diverse environments. Using Docker containers developers can package apps with all dependencies, libraries, binaries, settings and other modules, and distribute all of them as a single unmodified package.
In the past, it was difficult to be certain that your application will run anywhere without dramatic changes because of different configurations of runtime environments and operating systems.
Using containers, developers can be sure that their application will run properly on any other server or cloud environment, regardless of any customized parameters that the destination machine might have.
On the other hand, both developers and system administrators may benefit from Docker technology by integrating it into their DevOps (developers + operations) toolbox. Developers can focus on writing code without worrying about the deployment process. It also allows them to reuse thousands of programs that have already been dockerized, and integrate them into their applications. As a result, it significantly speeds up development and time-to-market for new applications.
System administrators benefit from Docker’s unified packaging standard and small footprint that leads to lower resource overhead. Using Docker containers, they can deploy applications on-premise or to any cloud provider without any changes to their deployment scripts. Due to this fact, they spend less time on repeatable manual actions and can concentrate on important tasks.
