This tutorial explains, how to install docker on ec2 instance. Before starting, let’s have some brief knowledge about Docker.
Docker is a platform that combines applications and its dependencies in the form of packages, called container. We can run multiple containers on a single Operating System. Containers are not Virtual Machines. Virtual Machines requires Operating System to run applications, but containers do not. As containers don’t need an Operating System, it takes very little time to start and hence it is very faster than Virtual Machines.
