Docker is a sandboxing software using reusable containers. You use prebuilt little Linux containers, or containers of specific services like mysql, apache2, etcetera, and you usually mount configuration directories outside of them. That way they remain reusable. There's lots of containers in dockerhub, a major repository for containers. I've used it only a little bit and not in production. Some others could likely give a more comprehensive description I'm sure.


I have just installed docker on my laptop. I thought this was a good start to learn something about it: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.freecodecamp.org/news/the-docker-handbook/amp/
