About Docker Technology

Docker is a platform that is devoted to programmers and administrators and also allows to build, distribute and run applications. This technology enables to build software from components and eliminate problems that are connected with its distribution. Docker facilitates the introduction of Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery processes to SDLC process.

The great advantage is that Docker containers are independent from the hardware platform and allow a good insulation process which is the basis for building a modern application architecture, based on micro services.

Despite of the short development period, Docker is now widely used in many applications. A common standard for containers is being worked out. It will improve containers' safety and develop best practices to use containers on a large scale.

Many tools for managing Docker cluster-based containers have been produced recently. The most popular ones are Mesos and Kubernetes. Appache Mesos is an open-source technology that allows to build and run distributed systems easily. These systems are called frameworks that enable to lunch applications, for instance: Cassandra, Spark, Hadoop, Jenkins and many others. Kubernetes was given to the open source community by Google company. It is based on the company's experience of managing similar infrastructure internally that has been gained over the years. Moreover, it contains answers for many common problems of a distributed application infrastructure such as service discovery, monitoring services, affinity and so on.
