Docker containers can easily be compared to a directory. A Docker container holds everything that is required for an application to run including its dependencies and can be started, stopped, moved and deleted at will. When containers are activated they use Linux kernel namespaces. Each container operates in isolation from the server apart from networking and storage. Each container is created from a Docker image and one can have multiple containers running, depending upon the server hardware capacity. Docker containers are the run component of Docker.
