Let’s talk about the Plesk Docker Extension

Docker is a software technology that provides containers. That’s an extra layer of abstraction and automation of operating-system-level virtualization. As a flexible Plesk tool, Docker can help you perform a wide variety of tasks. Today, I’ll show you how Docker can make your life easier – with examples.

Note: All examples in this article were made using the free version of the Docker extension for Plesk.
