My thoughts on Docker, i.e. Linux Containers

Docker is an open-source project, started by Solomon Hykes of dotCloud, that automates the packaging of an application and its dependencies, and the deployment of such applications inside software containers on a Linux kernel. Currently the technology is being strongly pushed by the Linux community and especially by Red Hat. Unlike hypervisor-based virtual machines, a Docker container does not include the kernel or all the operating system libraries, shells and utilities. Instead, it relies on functionality in the Linux kernel (cgroups, LXC, etc.) to provide resource and namespace isolation. In many ways this is similar to the older Oracle Solaris
