Docker is an open-source container technology best known for simplifying the workflows of developers and sysadmins. In Docker, applications are in fact shipped within virtual software containers, which can be run either on a physical machine, an instance in a public or private cloud, or a distributed system.Docker has equally proven to be an excellent technology for hosting WordPress sites. By enabling users to easily migrate an environment from one server to another without needing to change configuration settings, Docker increases the security of these websites and makes it easier for the user to scale them.Web agencies, who host a huge number of websites on their servers, can also use Docker to industrialise their hosting platforms and cohabit heterogeneous application environments, such as different versions of a language. In a nutshell, Docker improves the performance and facilitates maintenance of their platforms.
