Containers are not a new thing, but implementing them was always a little more complicated than it needed to be. Docker made great leaps in simplification of containers and set the world on fire from there. Let’s look at why.
In a recent post I provided my initial impressions of Docker, which were glowing to put it mildly. After spending more time working with it, I've found that it does still have
some additional drawbacks in certain situations just about every situation covered thanks to Vagrant.
After getting an intense look at Docker last night, I firmly believe that it is going to be the most disruptive server technology that we've seen in the last few years. It fills a much needed hole that's currently managed by very expensive solutions and it's being actively funded by some of the biggest players in the market.
