One of the more challenging parts of working in software business is getting your application deployed and working correctly. I came across a new tool that promises to ease the process.
Docker is an open-source tool that automates the deployment mechanism of an application as a portable and self-sufficient container that will run on corresponding architectures (Linux).
It promises to deliver build the container once and deploy anywhere i.e. dedicated server, laptop, VM or OpenStack clusters. The big sell for the developer is an easy to use and repeatable deployment mechanism for deployment of applications to any suitable target.
I’ll investigate Docker and write an in-depth post.
