# Docker Containers
Often, in order to isolate applications, application developers organized applications and their dependencies into it own virtual machine. This virtualization has spawned a number of products that abstract this virtualization to the operating system via containers. A major player in containerization is Docker Inc., and Commandeer assists you in the setup and management of your Docker containers.
# What is Docker Container
Docker containers run an instance of your Docker image. You can run as many containers as you like. Containers are connected with each other using networks. Each container can have multiple volumes mounted to it for storing and sharing data. Last but not least, Docker containers can expose some ports so we can access our containers.
