Docker is an open platform for developers and system administrators to build, ship and run distributed applications. The platform containers wrap a piece of software in a complete filesystem that contains everything needed to run: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries – anything that can be installed on a server. This guarantees that the software will always run the same, regardless of its environment.
