Discussion on: What is docker?

Hi David,

I am trying to install hyper-ledger framework on aws server.As the server is being shared by multiple users I have been asked to do installations within my pip virtual env.

Now for Hyperledger , docker is one of the prerequisites , so should I install docker within virtualenv or install docker in root and then create virtual env?

Or if docker is there I do not need to use virtual env and docker will take care of separate environments.
Purpose of Virtual env here is only to maintain separate workspace.

You can create a docke for every environment
