Commercial use of Docker Desktop in larger enterprises (more than 250 employees OR more than $10 million USD in annual revenue) requires a paid subscription.
Docker Desktop is an easy-to-install application for your Mac, Linux, or Windows environment that enables you to build and share containerized applications and microservices.
It provides a simple interface that enables you to manage your containers, applications, and images directly from your machine without having to use the CLI to perform core actions.
- Ability to containerize and share any application on any cloud platform, in multiple languages and frameworks.
- Easy installation and setup of a complete Docker development environment.
- Includes the latest version of Kubernetes.
- On Windows, the ability to toggle between Linux and Windows Server environments to build applications.
- Fast and reliable performance with native Windows Hyper-V virtualization.
- Ability to work natively on Linux through WSL 2 on Windows machines.
- Volume mounting for code and data, including file change notifications and easy access to running containers on the localhost network.
Docker Desktop works with your choice of development tools and languages and gives you access to a vast library of certified images and templates in Docker Hub. This enables development teams to extend their environment to rapidly auto-build, continuously integrate, and collaborate using a secure repository.
