Summary of the content learned in this chapter.

In this chapter, we learned about Docker, Inc. and Docker technology.

Docker, Inc. is a technology company out of San Francisco with an ambition to change the way we do software. They were arguably the first-movers and instigators of the modern container revolution.

The Docker technology focuses on running and managing application containers. It runs on Linux and Windows. It can also be installed almost anywhere, and is currently the most popular container runtime used by Kubernetes.

The Open Container Initiative (OCI) was instrumental in standardizing the container runtime format and container image format.
