Docker Inc. was founded in 2010 and first released the Docker platform in 2013. Docker is an open source platform for developing, shipping, and running applications. It provides a way to run almost any application securely isolated in a container. The isolation and security allow you to run many containers simultaneously on your host. Which helps to reduce conflicts between teams running different software on the same infrastructure. The Docker container platform is available for both Linux and Windows based apps. Besides the open source platform there is the Docker Enterprise Edition (EE), an enterprise-ready container platform that enables IT leaders to choose how to cost-effectively build and manage their entire application portfolio at their own pace, without fear of architecture and infrastructure lock-in. Which includes services, support and training.
