Docker Tutorial

Docker is a platform for managing container-based applications. Using the container-based approach we can separate our application from the actual physical machine, and run it in a self-contained environment.


The word “docker” means-

A person who is responsible for loading and unloading items(metal containers) on a ship.

Docker software performs the same responsibility. It packages an application in containers, and then runs and manages a container. This enables us to run applications separately that use different versions of programming language or other software.

As we are learning about docker, so we should also be aware of the Moby project. Let’s see what the Moby project is-


Moby works as the core of Docker. It is an open-source project, for assembling containerized applications.

The Moby project was created by docker. It was created so that container systems can be created without reinventing the wheel.

It works as a framework, and helps to build components and tools for the container ecosystem. It contains some standard components and exposes a framework, which is used by Docker. We can also build our own customized container system on top of Moby.

System engineers, hackers, and infrastructure providers can use the Moby project to provide additional functions or patch the docker/container system.

Moby uses containerd as the default container runtime. Let’s see what containerd is-


containerd is a container runtime.
