Docker at Shopify: How we built containers that power over 100,000 online shops
“Containers have the potential to do for the datacenter what consoles did for gaming…Docker containers provide the building blocks to make our data centers easier to run and more adaptable by placing applications into self-contained, ready-to-run units much like cartridges did for console games.”

“If you haven’t heard of Docker I’m going to assume you’ve been living under a rock for the last six months, because it’s pretty much everywhere. My team started exploring Docker to help us with a variety of problems a few months ago and now we’re not looking back. In fact, we’re rapidly adopting Docker as our main deployment architecture for all production deploys. I want to share with you some of the main reasons we like Docker and the problems it’s solving for us.”
What is Docker and why use it?
“…in Docker, there’s no overhead introduced by the need to emulate an entire OS for the virtual machine…Another important difference is that, with Docker, the host and the container have to run the same type of OS.”
“Both containers and Virtual Machines address the same problem – isolation and control of components of an application – but this is achieved in different way as containers give up some of the isolation for a more efficient usage of the (host) system resources.”
