About the technology

The idea behind Docker is simple: Package applications in lightweight virtual containers that can be easily installed. The results of this simple idea are huge! Docker makes it possible to manage applications without creating custom infrastructures. Free, open-source, and battle-tested, Docker has quickly become must-know technology for developers and administrators.
