I have some questions regarding docker.

In docker image template, there is template that define for Ubuntu.

1) May I know is it possible to build and run this Ubuntu docker image on Redhat server?

2) Is it possible to use this docker image as environment for development for solution that use debian dependencies packages?

I not sure whether such question can be asked in this forum. if no, please enlighten me to the correct forum to raise such question.

  1. You can run that image on Windows/macOS/Linux and so on as long as docker is installed. See: List of all environments.
  2. "Development for a solution" is a bit confusing though. It is more like encapsulation on container level (OOP encapsulation). Containers allow a developer to package up an application with all of the parts it needs, such as libraries and other dependencies.
  • i mean running as an environment platform for code development – Esther Oct 18 '18 at 7:25
  • Without any GUI you can build a platform for coding without knowing what kind of development you are onto. For instance for python you can do that without docker with known isolation methods.Building development environment with docker for testing purpose sounds fine but for usual production sounds new.If you could be more specific regarding your purpose and what environment you are willing to do I think it would be more helpful – hakkican Oct 18 '18 at 9:49
  1. Sure. You can run a Linux-based Docker image on any Linux host.
  2. Yes, it is possible. You can run & develop in a debian-based docker container.
