Software / Docker


Docker is a Platform as a Service tool that uses OS-level virtualization to deliver software in packages called containers. Containers make it possible to run software with lower overhead and higher efficiency than traditional virtual machines, while still giving significant advantages over a traditional deployment.

Docker containers are designed to be lightweight, fast to start up, and fast to stop. This means that you can run many containers on a single machine without worrying about the hardware becoming overloaded.

The Docker platform has been gaining popularity in recent years because of its ability to make managing software easier for developers, but it also provides benefits to businesses as a whole. Docker containers can run on any hardware, whether it’s on premises or in the cloud. These containers make your infrastructure significantly more flexible – services can easily be moved from one machine to another without having to worry about the underlying software – allowing you to simplify upgrades and migrations.

At Jordan Solutions, we use Docker extensively. This website is containerized, as well as many of our clients’ services. In addition to using the software to provision for our clients, we also provide service monitoring and support for existing Docker installations.
