Docker support and maintenance: Manage and secure new applications with a broader container strategy
Running applications by using containers is gaining popularity in the IT world. Docker is the most talked about technologies of today and many organizations and developers are rapidly using it for good reasons. It is a popular tool that is designed to make it easier to develop, deploy and run various applications by using the containers and adding a layer of abstraction.
There are usually minor differences between the development environment and the release lifecycles, unless you maintain your own private repository environment where tight checks are placed. Docker helps to address these differences by ensuring a consistent environment inside isolated containers from development to deployment. The containers allow the developers to bundle the application with all its various parts like the libraries and other dependencies and then ship it as a single package.
