StackEngine Technical Evangelist Boyd Hemphill explores how Docker container technology, helps enable the practice of DevOps.
Some technologies are tools of the DevOps trade. Chef, Jenkins, Vagrant and Zookeeper are all tools that can be used for huge leverage and impact by the right people.

If the lessons of the Phoenix Project are to be put to practice, then Docker must not only allow for costs savings and collaboration. It must also facilitate change and affect company revenue. Docker must be truly disruptive.
