Advantages of Docker Container Technology

Docker brings in an API for container management, an image format and a possibility to use a remote registry for sharing containers. This scheme benefits both developers and system administrators with advantages such as:

Rapid application deployment

Containers include the minimal runtime requirements of the application, reducing their size and allowing them to be deployed quickly.

Portability across machines

An application and all its dependencies can be bundled into a single container that is independent of the host version of Linux kernel, platform distribution, or deployment model.

Sharing

You can use a remote repository to share your container with others. Red Hat provides a registry for this purpose, and it is also possible to configure your own private repository.

Simplified maintenance

Docker reduces effort and risk of problems with application dependencies.
