The open-source Docker container engine is helping lead a revolution in how applications are built, managed and deployed. Unlike a virtual machine (VM) hypervisor application, a Docker container application does not require a separate full operating system that runs on top of an existing host operating system. Instead, Docker can use the host operating system on which the Docker Engine runs, enabling developers and organizations to be more efficient with computing resources. While Docker can run on multiple OSes, including various flavors of Linux and Windows, there has been a movement in the last two years toward highly optimized Docker-focused operating systems, including Red Hat's Project Atomic, Rancher, CoreOS and Alpine Linux. Alpine Linux offers the promise of a very small memory and system footprint, providing Docker container users with the ability to make the most of the underlying system without much host OS overhead. eWEEK takes a look at key features of the Alpine Linux distribution.
After more than a year of development, the container runtime gets a stable, production-ready 1.0 release.
