Docker Hosting

What is Docker? 

Docker is a system designed to simplify and optimise the process of creating, deploying and running applications. 

Software programs and applications are created as Docker images and then packaged into Docker containers – these containers include all the parts the program needs in order to run correctly.

A Docker repository is required to run the Docker containers. A single server can run several Docker containers simultaneously. Containers are isolated from each other on the platform but share the Operating System (OS). Sharing the OS means that more resources, such as memory and processing power, can be devoted to the application itself.

A developer will install their programs inside Docker images that specify their precise contents. A Docker image is a lightweight package of software that includes everything needed to run an application: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries and settings. Docker images are like a template for an application.

This set up means that containers can be run anywhere and each time it will be exactly identical, regardless of the infrastructure it’s running on.
