Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability.
Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a
high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract
the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions,
network setup, and other details of this environment.
This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "the new virtualization."
But containers are more than lightweight virtual machines. Beyond their
smaller footprint, shorter boot times, and higher consolidation factors, they
also bring a lot of new features and use cases that were not possible with
classical virtual machines.

Public and Private Cloud: Two Dimensions in the Same World
The industry is heated with debates on whether adopting private or public
cloud is the smartest, best, cheapest, you name it choice. But this debate is
missing the mark. Businesses shouldn't be discussing public vs. private, but
rather how can they make the two work together to their greatest advantage.
The ideal is to merge on-premise and off-premise into a seamless environment
that can be managed as a single entity - a forward-looking stance that will
eventually see major adoption. But as of late 2013, hybrid cloud was s... (more)
