Docker Support

Develop, test and deploy apps more efficiently

Docker is an open-source software which is used for server containerization. It is particularly useful for isolation of apps and their libraries, and for isolation of configurating and other files. 

Docker Containerization Features

Efficient Resource Utilisation

Containers consume far less server power in comparison with hypervisors which are often used for full virtualisation.

Plenty of Images

There have already been more than 3 M public images that might be used in Docker. Most of them are available in Docker Hub.

Easily Controlled

There have already been more than 3 M public images that might be used in Docker. Most of them are available in Docker Hub.

Easy scaling

Containers are a perfect help when scaling. With those, you might almost instantly respond to a decrease/increase in number of app users.

Portability to various enviroments

Isolated containers might be easily transfered into various enviroments in order to test software portability.

Proven Technology

Docker is by far the most popular containerization technology. It is used by more than 12 thousand companies which mostly have from 10 to 50 employees and 1 to 10 M $ income per year. Nevertheless except for the above mentioned, also bigger software companies such as ThoughtWorks, Neudesic and SLALOM use Docker.

Makes software development and deployment easier

Consistent development environment

The whole team with with the same OS, the same libraries and in the same programming environment.

Saves developers' time

Developers’ time is priceless; using Docker much time on testing and deployment might be saved.

Programming environment in Docker itself

It is not necessary to install a specific environment for each language. Just download ä relevant Docker image.

Deployment with confidence

If the Docker app runs on development platform, you can just pack it and deploy on the target server.

Docker Technology Architecture

Where to run Docker on?

Docker might be deployed on dedicated servers, clouds and some VPSs; the only issue to take into account is the means of virtualisation. When it comes to so-called lightweigt virtualisation, or in other words virtualisation on the level of OS, such as LXC, do not install Docker on it. On the contrary, full virtualisation is suitable, such as KVM and Hyper-V.

Install Docker on MasterDC server

Docker is free, and its installment is no trouble. If you install a new linux virtual server, you might use our manual which involves step by step instructions. All our physical servers might be containerized, including clouds and VPS, except LXC virtualisation.
