Description

What is Docker Compose?

With Compose, you define a multi-container application in a single file, then spin your application up in a single command which does everything that needs to be done to get it running.

What is Docker Machine?

Machine lets you create Docker hosts on your computer, on cloud providers, and inside your own data center. It creates servers, installs Docker on them, then configures the Docker client to talk to them.

What is Container Factory?

container-factory produces Docker images from tarballs of application source code. It accepts archives with Dockerfiles, but if your application's language is supported, it can automatically add a suitable Dockerfile.
