Why do we use Docker?
Docker started as dotCloud’s internal project and saw its first release in 2013. The idea was to leverage the resource isolation feature of the Linux kernel in order to replace virtual machines with independent containers, which can all use the same Linux instance. App containerisation was about to become a big thing.
With system-level virtualization offered by Docker, it’s possible to eliminate the need to run new systems within virtual machines. Instead, every single OS features multiple containers, each of which has all the dependencies needed by an app stored in it. Due to all the benefits of container-based infrastructure, skilled Docker developers are now highly sought-after.
Provides repeatable development environment and standardizes app behavior across machines
Easy to maintain
Eliminates many maintenance problems (e.g. environment differences), while reducing the impact of others
Analyzing and fixing bugs becomes way easier, which translates into smaller teams and more time for core tasks
New level of scalability
Adding new containers and managing them (combined with other tools) can be done on-the-go
Fast, faster, the fastest
Apps are fast and the deployment faster than ever before, making sure that you are the fastest on the market
All these benefits mean decreased relative costs of infrastructure and operations
Why is app containerisation with Docker so popular? There are tons of reasons. Containers provide a standardized development environment, make app behavior independent from the machine that runs it, and contribute to reduced infrastructure requirements. All of this translates to improved scalability and lower server and maintenance costs.
The benefits of Docker development are best proved by the experience of companies that implement it at the core of their infrastructure. For example, more than ⅔ of all companies that introduce Docker make a decision to adopt it permanently. And within a short time, they multiply the number of running containers.
DevOps experts at The Software House know all about maximizing the potential of Docker-based containers in order to speed up deployment, reduce costs and improve the overall efficiency of software development process. In concert with other DevOps tools, they will make your app fast and scalable, reducing time-to-market and time-to-value.
