    How to install Docker on a virtual or dedicated server?

    To install Docker, you need to select a license while ordering a server on HOSTKEY website. Our auto-deployment system will install the software platform on your server. Also you can read how to install this software by yourself.

    I am having trouble installing and/or using Docker

    If you have any difficulties or questions when installing and/or using the software platform, carefully learn the documentation on the official website of the developer, read about typical problems and how to solve them or contact Docker support.

    Does Docker run on Linux, macOS and Windows?

    You can run both Linux and Windows programs and executables in Docker containers. The Docker platform natively runs on Linux (on x86-64, ARM and many other CPU architectures) and on Windows (x86-64).
    Docker Inc. creates products that let you build and run containers on Linux, Windows and macOS.

    What is Docker?

    Docker is a software platform that allows you to build, run, and share containerized applications. Containers are lightweight, standalone, executable packages of software that include everything needed to run an application: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries and settings.

    What are the benefits of using Docker?

    There are many benefits to using Docker, including:

    • Increased portability: Containers can be easily moved from one environment to another, making it easy to deploy applications to production.
    • Improved efficiency: Containers share the underlying operating system, which can lead to improved resource utilization.
    • Reduced complexity: Docker simplifies the process of managing applications, making it easier to get started and scale your applications.
    • Increased security: Containers can be isolated from each other, which can help to improve security.

    What are the differences between Docker and virtualization?

    Docker and virtualization are both technologies that can be used to isolate applications from the underlying operating system. However, there are some key differences between the two technologies.

    • Virtualization creates a complete virtual machine, including its own operating system. This can be more resource-intensive than Docker, which only creates a container that shares the underlying operating system.
    • Docker is more lightweight and portable than virtualization. This makes it easier to move containers from one environment to another.
    • Docker is more focused on application development and deployment. Virtualization is more general-purpose and can be used for a wider range of tasks.

    What are Docker images and containers?

    A Docker image is a blueprint for a Docker container. It contains the instructions for how to create a container, including the code, runtime, system tools, system libraries and settings.

    A Docker container is a running instance of a Docker image. It is a lightweight, standalone, executable package of software that includes everything needed to run an application.

    How do I create a Docker image? Какие главные преимущества Docker?

    To create a Docker image, you can use the docker build command. This command takes a Dockerfile as input, which is a text file that specifies the instructions for creating the image.

    How do I run a Docker container?

    To run a Docker container, you can use the docker run command. This command takes a Docker image as input and creates a container from it.

    What are some best practices for using Docker?

    Here are some best practices for using Docker:

    • Use Dockerfiles to create your images. This will make it easier to build and manage your images.
    • Use tagged images. This will make it easier to track and manage your images.
    • Use environment variables to configure your containers. This will make your containers more portable.
    • Use Docker Compose to orchestrate your containers. This will make it easier to deploy and manage your applications.

    What are some of the security considerations for using Docker?

    Here are some of the security considerations for using Docker:

    • Make sure that your images are secure. This includes using secure base images and avoiding running containers as root.
    • Use a secure Docker registry. This will help to protect your images from unauthorized access.
    • Use network isolation to protect your containers from each other.
    • Monitor your containers for suspicious activity.

    How do I manage Docker containers?

    There are a number of ways to manage Docker containers. You can use the Docker CLI, Docker Compose, or a third-party management tool.

    How do I scale Docker containers?

    There are a number of ways to scale Docker containers. You can use Docker Swarm, Kubernetes, or a third-party orchestration tool.

    How do I deploy Docker containers to production?

    There are a number of ways to deploy Docker containers to production. You can use a Docker registry, a cloud-based deployment service, or a self-hosted deployment solution.

    Docker key features

    A platform for developing, deploying, and running applications in containers. Docker containers allow you to effectively manage the development of applications and easily scale them. Docker uses operating system-level virtualization technology to achieve high performance and resource efficiency. With Docker, you can easily build, deploy and scale applications, and also manage them using the command line or GUI.

    Container Management
    Docker provides convenient tools for managing the lifecycle of containers, including creating, starting, stopping, restarting, and deleting containers.
    Image Management
    Docker allows the user to create and manage images that are used to create and run containers.
    Resource isolation
    Docker uses the functionality of containers to provide resource isolation between applications and containers.
    Network Management
    Docker provides tools for configuring and managing network interfaces of a container, including network configuration, routing, and monitoring.
    Storage management
    Docker can be used to manage the data storage, used by containers.
    Version control
    Docker provides the ability to manage versions of images and containers, making it easier to deploy application updates.
    Security Management
    Docker provides capabilities for securing containers and applications, including setting access rights, security monitoring, and data encryption.
    System scaling
    Containerization allows for more efficient use of computing hardware, consolidation of workloads and cost reduction in data centers.
    Docker can be integrated into continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipelines, allowing for automated building, testing, and deployment of containerized applications.

    What customers say

    After launching another successful IP — HUNT: Showdown, a competitive first-person PvP bounty hunting game with heavy PvE elements, Crytek aimed to bring this amazing game for its end-users. We needed a hosting provider that can offer us high-performance servers with great network speed, latency, and 24/7 support.
    Stefan Neykov Crytek
    doXray has been using HOSTKEY for the development and the operation of our software solutions. Our applications require the use of GPU processing power. We have been using HOSTKEY for several years and we are very satisfied with the way they operate. New requirements are setup fast and support follows up after the installation process to check if everything is as requested. Support during operations is reliable and fast.
