About the technology
The idea behind Docker is simple—package just your application and its dependencies into a lightweight, isolated virtual environment called a container. Applications running inside containers are easy to install, manage, and remove. This simple idea is used in everything from creating safe, portable development environments to streamlining deployment and scaling for microservices. In short, Docker is everywhere.
