Docker is a system for delivering and running software in isolated environments called containers. The Docker Engine allows multiple containers to run within a single instance of the Linux kernel by leveraging the Linux kernel’s process isolation features (such as cgroups and kernel namespaces). On Windows, Docker runs a Linux VM on Hyper-V to run Linux containers.
