We explain the main advantages of Docker and why you should use it to deploy your projects.

Why You Should Use Docker For Your Projects

Over the last couple of years, there's been a lot of buzz around Docker. If you don't what Docker does and how you can benefit from it, we've got you covered.


About Docker

According to its own website, "Docker is an open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications, whether on laptops, data center VMs, or the cloud."

Right. But what does Docker do?

Basically, Docker is an excellent platform for building and sharing disk images. It is also a great manager for infrastructure (Linux Containers).


So…when should you use Docker?

You should use Docker when you want to distribute your app's operating system or collaborate with a team. 

You can also use Docker to run a code on your laptop in the same environment as your server. 

In the end, you can use Docker as a version control system for your entire app's operating system.
