Docker is a container which wraps up a piece of software in a complete file system that contains everything it needs to run: code, run-time, system tools, system libraries – anything you can install on a server. Containers virtualize at the operating system level making it more efficient than hypervisors in system resource usage.Does Docker need hardware virtualization?
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.
