Docker is a kind of service which allows you to package an application with all of its dependencies into an entity which is called as a container. Container wrap up the software into complete filesystem which contain code, system tools, system libraries and anything else which is required to run that application. It totally virtualize the environment inside a container and make it run without any trouble. Container is a lightweight and can share the same operating system with other containers if running on a single machine. It isolate the application from each other by providing an extra layer of protection to the application.
