Docker provides a platform similar to a virtualization platform with some added benefits

Docker is the most commonly used containerization platform. It provides a platform similar to a virtualization platform, with some added benefits:

-Docker containers are lightweight

-Multiple Docker containers may be run on a single underlying Linux OS with Docker Engine

-Docker containers are isolated from other Docker containers and are provided their own file system and networking

-Some Linux OS such as CoreOS have Docker Engine installed out-of-the-box
