Docker Daemon Lifecycle (EOL)

Docker Daemon

Below you can find the life cycle for each version of application Docker Daemon, like Docker EE 20.10, including release dates and end of life (EOL) dates.

Docker is a software technology providing containers, promoted by the company Docker, Inc. Docker provides an additional layer of abstraction and automation of operating-system-level virtualization on Windows and Linux. Docker uses the resource isolation features of the Linux kernel such as cgroups and kernel namespaces, and a union-capable file system such as OverlayFS and others to allow independent "containers" to run within a single Linux instance, avoiding the overhead of starting and maintaining virtual machines (VMs).
