Docker: Git for deployment
Docker is to deployment as Git is to development.

Developers are able to leverage Git's performance and flexibility when building applications. Git encourages experiments and doesn't punish you when things go wrong: start your experiments in a branch, if things fall down, just git rebase or git reset. It's easy to start a branch and fast to push it.

Docker encourages experimentation for operations. Containers start quickly. Building images is a snap. Using another images as a base image is easy. Deploying whole images is fast, and last but not least, it's not painful to rollback.

Fast + flexible = deployments are about to become a lot more enjoyable.
