With the emergence of new technologies it can be challenging to define new definitions within an industry. Docker is no exception, and the unique processes it offers are taking some time to work their way into the DevOps lexicon. Many people (myself included) have referred to Docker as a virtualization technology, but that may not be technically correct. Virtualization typically involves creating abstractions of objects in a way that allows the native mode of interaction to exist. Docker does not make abstractions of anything and is more similar to an orchestrator that coordinates various services together.
