Overall Satisfaction with Docker

Docker is truly an amazing tool that is used across our organization. It gives the developer tools to easily set up environments, deploy code, CI pipeline. Open sourced images and community supports makes it a great choice.
  • Setting up Docker containers helps developers to replicate the production environment frim their local machine in a virtual box. This helps keep development and debugging simple.
  • Portability is really helpful. You can easily shift from AWS to GCP within minutes.
  • Docker images are version-controlled just like github commits.
  • User friendly - creating the virtual environment takes a lot more time than running the shell script to set up the environment.
  • Docker containers are for running applications and not for data containers. Having that feature would be awesome.
  • Docker image and containers prune command to force-delete all the images and containers as a cleanup.
  • Eliminate chef cook books.
  • Developers have their environment setup easily giving more time to concentrate on code.
  • CI pipeline in Jenkins runs perfectly with Jenkins. Each project using differeng containers. This makes decency management simple.
Docker isn’t a buzz word. It has promising return on investment and a bright future ahead backed up by the open source community.
It is best managed with cloud providers and setting up your CI pipeline. You probably would set up your images with access to file system,volume, environment variable.
