Does Docker use Hardware Virtualization? The short answer is: no. Docker needs a 64-bit Linux OS running a modern enough kernel to operate properly. Which means if that what you have happily running on your hardware without hw virtualization support, it will be plenty enough for Docker.Why should you use Docker?
Docker is a basic tool, like git or java, that you should start incorporating into your daily development and ops practices. Use Docker as version control system for your entire app's operating system. Use Docker when you want to distribute/collaborate on your app's operating system with a team.
