Docker: Enterprise Container Platform for High-Velocity Innovation. The Docker Platform is the industry-leading container platform for continuous, high-velocity innovation, enabling organizations to seamlessly build and share any application — from legacy to what comes next — and securely run them anywhere; Apache Mesos: Develop and run resource-efficient distributed systems. Apache Mesos is a cluster manager that simplifies the complexity of running applications on a shared pool of servers.
Docker and Apache Mesos are primarily classified as "Virtual Machine Platforms & Containers" and "Cluster Management" tools respectively.
Some of the features offered by Docker are:
