The Container Platform for Government

Docker delivers a secure, agile and cost efficient platform for government organizations to modernize applications without disruption.

  • Federal Government

    Federal Government

    Docker gives federal agencies the ability to modernize legacy application architectures quickly and cost effectively. With Docker, agencies can deploy scalable services, securely and reliably, on a wide variety of platforms to maximize capacity utilization, improve flexibility and minimize costs.

  • State and Local

    State and Local

    As resources shrink under budget pressures, state local government agencies are constantly asked to do more with less while improving services for their constituents. Docker’s integrated technology suite enables agencies to modernize their application architectures faster and more efficiently, while minimizing costs and improving service delivery.

  • Education


    From K-12 to higher educational, leaders in education are seeking ways to improve learning and meet the needs of diverse student and faculty populations while managing costs. Docker gives educational institutions the flexibility and operational efficiency they need to improve services for students and faculty while reducing their capital and operating expenses.

  • "The GSA was able to streamline their application development cycles by re-architecting their IT system to a common services platform with Docker."

    Nirmal Mehta - Senior Lead Technologist Strategic Innovation Group, Booz Allen Hamilton
  • "Having the right kinds of controls to make sure that changes to production are going through the right processes to make – and getting audited appropriately is important for us. So, the role-based access control is really good."

    Eric Westfall - Enterprise Software Architect, Indiana University
  • "I urge you to consider Docker when looking at your legacy and vendor applications. You will be surprised by the efficiencies you find. Also do yourself a favor and look at the Docker commercial product Docker Datacenter. We have benefited greatly from Docker’s commercial support and the relationships we have made within Docker the company."

    Shawn Bower - Cloud Architect, Cornell University
