Docker containers#

What is Docker?#

Docker is an open platform for developing, shipping, and running apps in a containerized way.

Containers are standard units of software that package the code and all its dependencies so that the app runs quickly and reliably from one computing environment to another.

Ensure that the machine where the Geometry service is to run has Docker installed. Otherwise, see Install Docker Engine in the Docker documentation.

Currently, the Geometry service backend is mainly delivered as a Windows Docker container. However, these containers require a Windows machine to run them.

Select the kind of Docker container you want to build:
