Docker: The Modern Platform for High-Velocity Innovation
Only independent container platform that enables organizations to seamlessly build, share and run any application, anywhere—from hybrid cloud to the edge.
Docker Platform for Digital Transformation
Innovation in today’s organizations comes from software, where all companies are becoming software companies and need to empower their developers to deliver new customer experiences quickly. Innovation can come in many different application formats – from traditional, monolithic applications to cloud-native and 12-factor applications.
These applications must also be able to run across hybrid/multi-cloud and out to the edge. Docker enables organizations to achieve these goals by providing the only end-to-end (desktop to the data center) experience for developing and scaling distributed applications while leveraging the processes, people and tools that they have in place today. In addition to building and running applications, the Docker Platform provides end-to-edge security at scale, without slowing down innovation with automated governance and compliance throughout the application lifecycle.
The Docker platform is built on industry-standard, open source technologies including Docker and Kubernetes. Used by millions of developers and IT professionals worldwide, Docker includes the world’s leading container content library and ecosystem with more than 100,000 container images from major software vendors, open-source projects and the community.
What Docker Can Do For Your Business

Docker for Developers
Building and deploying new applications is faster with containers. Docker containers wrap up software and its dependencies into a standardized unit for software development that includes everything it needs to run: code, runtime, system tools and libraries. This guarantees that your application will always run the same and makes collaboration as simple as sharing a container image.
Docker containers whether Windows or Linux are backed by Docker tools and APIs and help you build better software:
- Onboard faster and stop wasting hours trying to set up development environments, spin up new instances and make copies of production code to run locally.
- Enable polyglot development and use any language, stack or tools without worry of application conflicts.
- Eliminate environment inconsistencies and the “works on my machine” problem by packaging the application, configs and dependencies into an isolated container.
- Alleviate concern over application security
