Docker for Professionals: The Practical Guide
Installing a software wasn’t always this easy, it required dedicated systems with hardware sets that catered to the needs of the software. You now want to port your software to another system? Another OS? It just couldn’t be done! All of that was before Docker.
So, what is Docker?
Docker is a container that wraps a piece of software into a complete file system, including everything the file would require to run (code, runtime, system tools, etc.). It then allows you to ship and use this container on any environment, regardless of the system requirements or the operating system. Your app or system will become a portable container that you can use and discard as you please.
Want to create an app on Linux and test it on Windows or OSX? Now you can! No need to create special virtual machines anymore, all you need is Docker. This nifty tool simplifies the process of creating, shipping and deploying applications without having to worry about the environment it is being run on. Docker also does not alter any system files and only allows access to the system files that it has received permission for. Done with your app? Simply uninstall the Docker container and viola, its done. Docker does not alter or manipulate any internal system files, which means installing and uninstalling Docker will leave your system intact.
