Docker provides an excellent mechanism for creating low-overhead -isolated- execution environments. Using Docker, it is possible to mimic a multi-tier production environment on a single machine where each tier still gets their own isolated environment. While this was also possible with multiple VMs, their performance overhead makes it impractical. This webinar discusses a reference design that allows developers to test code in a production-like environment at a high pace, while still minimizing bugs that occur due to mismatch in local and QA/production environments.
