What does Docker do? Docker containers wrap a piece of software in a complete file system that contains everything it needs to run: code, runtime, system tools, and system libraries—anything you can install on a server. (Thanks for the clear definition, Docker!)

How do Parallels Desktop Pro Edition and Docker work together? Parallels Desktop Pro Edition supports the plug-in for Docker Machine, allowing users to create Docker hosts locally on Parallels Desktop virtual machines. This plug-in lets you easily create, test, and deploy your app in a safe VM environment—no need for an extra testing machine or risking your host OS! Read more about the Docker plug-in here.

Docker integration: Docker can be integrated and used with multiple tools such as Amazon Web Services®, Chef, Jenkins, Microsoft Azure®, OpenStack®, Vagrant, and more. Many of these tools are supported and used by our customers within Parallels Desktop!

Docker Toolbox: Docker Toolbox is an installer to quickly and easily install a Docker environment on your computer or as a VM. Once the installation of Docker Toolbox is complete, you will see the following:
