Overall Satisfaction with Docker

Docker is being used by us to create and throw away spaces as needed for testing. Instead of managing a huge hardware lab we are able to "spin up" configurations as needed. If we need a new configuration to test against we just build a new container. It makes life more simple.
  • Docker is fast.
  • Docker is well documented.
  • Docker has public container registries.
  • Docker storage is still hard.
  • Docker has poor monitoring.
  • Docker is platform-dependent.
  • We spend less money on hardware.
  • We are able to test faster thus finding bugs earlier in the development pipeline.
  • Our employees feel they are working with the latest technologies which allows us to retain and recruit better talent.
One of the coolest things about Docker that people tend to overlook, I think, is the way it has made public repositories the go-to way to distribute and install software. I’m referring to Docker Hub, which hosts thousands of container images that anyone can grab in just a single command.
