Docker is the world’s leading software container platform. Developers use Docker to eliminate “works on my machine??? problems when collaborating on code with co-workers. Developers use Docker to run and manage apps side-by-side in isolated containers to get better compute density. Enterprises use Docker to build agile software delivery pipelines to ship new features faster, more securely and with confidence for both Linux and Windows Server apps.
Docker for Developers
Docker automates the repetitive tasks of setting up and configuring development environments so that developers can focus on what matters: building great software.
Developers using Docker don’t have to install and configure complex databases nor worry about switching between incompatible language tool chain versions. When an app is dockerized, that complexity is pushed into containers that are easily built, shared and run. On boarding a co-worker to a new codebases no longer means hours spent installing software and explaining setup procedures. Code that ships with Docker files is simpler to work on: Dependencies are pulled as neatly packaged Docker images and anyone with Docker and an editor installed can build and debug the app in minutes.
Any App, Language or Stack
Build, test, debug and deploy Linux and Windows Server container apps written in any programming language without risk of incompatibilities or version conflicts.
Built-in container orchestration
Docker comes with built-in swarm clustering that’s easy to configure. Test and debug apps in environments that mimic production with minimal setup.
Awesome Developer Experience
Reduce on boarding time by 65%: Quickly build, test and run complex multi-container apps and stop wasting time installing and maintaining software on servers and developer machines. All dependencies run in containers, eliminating “works on my machine??? problems.
Secure By Default
Docker is secure out-of-the-box with no additional setup required. Mutual TLS, certificate rotation, image signing and container isolation makes for bullet-proof and easy-to-use container app run times.
