Please elaborate on the benefit of using Docker over hypervisor and its unique features from other competitive technologies?
On broad terms, Docker and hypervisor form the same working but still, there is a wide range of differences between them. Docker is a lightweight technology as it raises fewer resources and also hosts kernel. Hypervisor technology creates the Colonel rather than hosting.
Most significant features of Docker from other competitive technologies are-
- The Docker container can be run on PC as well as the company's or Enterprise's IT system.
- As Docker is a repository of containers it can be deployed and downloaded on all the applications from a centralized location
- The applications can be shared actively with all the containers that were created earlier.
