I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

do you use Containers currently, do you use Docker ?

Rather than spinning up an entire OS, you can just spin up a website service for example.

see these EE Articles

I do not have much idea about Docker and do not use containers.   I am currently considering the best technologies for our VMware infrastructure therefore needed more details.  Thanks.

If you don't use Docker currently, or use containers, it may be of little use to you currently.
