Docker
'the Linux container engine'. I totally misunderstood what Docker was -- this is cool.
Heterogeneous payloads: Any combination of binaries, libraries, configuration files, scripts, virtualenvs, jars, gems, tarballs, you name it. No more juggling between domain-specific tools. Docker can deploy and run them all.

Any server: Docker can run on any x64 machine with a modern linux kernel - whether it's a laptop, a bare metal server or a VM. This makes it perfect for multi-cloud deployments.

Isolation: Docker isolates processes from each other and from the underlying host, using lightweight containers.

Repeatability: Because each container is isolated in its own filesystem, they behave the same regardless of where, when, and alongside what they run.
