Bitnami vs Docker: What are the differences?
Bitnami: The App Store for Server Software. Our library provides trusted virtual machines for every major development stack and open source server application, ready to run in your infrastructure; Docker: Enterprise Container Platform for High-Velocity Innovation. The Docker Platform is the industry-leading container platform for continuous, high-velocity innovation, enabling organizations to seamlessly build and share any application — from legacy to what comes next — and securely run them anywhere.
Bitnami and Docker are primarily classified as "Server Software" and "Virtual Machine Platforms & Containers" tools respectively.
Some of the features offered by Bitnami are:
