"Docker is the world's leading software container platform to build, ship, and run any app anywhere."
Docker is a container platform provider that addresses every application across the hybrid cloud, making it possible for developers to build and manage applications within software containers.
By using this container, developers and system administrators can manage their apps without the need for any additional hardware or even spinning up a virtual server. Docker provides them the solution to package apps with all of their dependencies into a standardized unit for software development, making it simpler and safer to deploy their technology.
Container platform is not only a piece of technology, it offers sustainable advantages to its users by providing all features an enterprise operation requires such as security, governance, automation, support, and certification. Docker modernizes traditional apps, supports cloud migration, enables a true separation of concerns to accelerate the adoption of DevOps processes, as well as enabling microservices application development.
