How well do you know Docker components and services?

With Docker containers moving into more enterprise IT shops, it's imperative to grasp how the technology works. Test your knowledge of Docker components and services with this quiz.

Docker is a hot topic in IT operations. It's not only dominating conversations, but taking over the containerization market as well. The open source Docker service expanded in 2015 to offer a paid enterprise edition, and has become the most commonly used containerization software in this nascent technological market.

Docker generally refers to Docker Engine. Docker is a platform for encapsulating and running application code quickly. Docker Engine is the underlying software technology, atop which components run numerous container services, from development to maintenance to storage.

Despite being the most widely used container service, Docker features such an array of components that they can be difficult to keep straight. Take this quiz to see how well you know Docker components and services.
