The Most Popular Docker Images In 2022

Unless you have stumbled on to the wrong blog, you probably already know what docker is, but if not, here’s a quick summary.

With Docker, you can quickly build, test, and deploy new apps. The software is packaged into containers that contain all of the components needed to run, including libraries, system tools, code, and runtime. It’s easy to swiftly deploy and scale apps with Docker in any environment, knowing that your code will run.

Dockers adoptions is growing and growing fast, as you can see on the image from Datadog the number of environments (which Datadog monitors) has over 20% of all hosts using docker.

With more and more people using docker, and with Gartner predicting that by the end of 2022, more than 75% of global organizations will be running containerized applications in production, up from less than 30% in June 2020.
