Docker is the world’s leading open source container and microservices platform. It allows developers to build applications from microservices without worrying about inconsistencies between development and production environments. The system wraps a piece of software in a complete filesystem that contains everything needed to run: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries. Docker Datacenter delivers an enterprise container management platform that provides agility, portability and control to both developers and IT operations teams. The system helps developers build and ship applications 13 times faster and gives IT Ops the flexibility to respond to changing business needs.
Red Hat is the second largest contributor to the Docker and Kubernetes codebases and works with the Open Container Initiative and the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. Red Hat contributes code and improvements back to the upstream codebase. OpenShift is Red Hat’s container application development and hosting platform that automates the tedious management tasks so you can focus on development and writing apps to meet business goals. It gives your developers and operations teams the tools they need to iterate faster and reduce time between application releases.
