I've been hearing about performance issues when running Docker on the new M(1/2) macs, so thought I'd feature this deep-dive on the topic. Paolo Mainardi covers the fundamentals of how docker works on macs, then goes into how to fix performance issues. There are also a bunch of links to other good resources for specific topics.
- Docker is a tool used to run containers, which are self-contained systems, on different environments
- Docker containers are still Linux processes and need a Virtual Machine (VM) to run on other operating systems
- Having to use a VM complicates things regarding storage for docker containers
