Docker is a software platform that allows you to build, test, and deploy applications quickly. Docker packages software into standardized units called containers that have everything the software needs to run including libraries, system tools, code, and runtime. Using Docker, you can quickly deploy and scale applications into any environment and know your code will run.
Running Docker on AWS provides developers and admins a highly reliable, low-cost way to build, ship, and run distributed applications at any scale.
Recent announcements: Docker collaborates with AWS to help developers speed delivery of modern apps to the cloud. This collaboration helps developers use Docker Compose and Docker Desktop to leverage the same local workflow they use today to seamlessly deploy apps on Amazon ECS and AWS Fargate. Read the blog for more information.
Get a head start on your coding by leveraging Docker images to efficiently develop your own unique applications on Windows and Mac. Create your multi-container application using Docker Compose.
Integrate with your favorite tools throughout your development pipeline – Docker works with all development tools you use including VS Code, CircleCI and GitHub.
Package applications as portable container images to run in any environment consistently from on-premises Kubernetes to AWS ECS, Azure ACI, Google GKE and more.
Leverage Docker Trusted Content, including Docker Official Images and images from Docker Verified Publishers from the Docker Hub repository.
Innovate by collaborating with team members and other developers and by easily publishing images to Docker Hub.
Personalize developer access to images with roles based access control and get insights into activity history with Docker Hub Audit Logs.
Deliver multiple applications hassle free and have them run the same way on all your environments including design, testing, staging and production – desktop or cloud-native.
Deploy your applications in separate containers independently and in different languages. Reduce the risk of conflict between languages, libraries or frameworks.
Speed development with the simplicity of Docker Compose CLI and with one command, launch your applications locally and on the cloud with AWS ECS and Azure ACI.
