What is Docker?
Is it an addon in hosting control panels?

I'm using Docker to run several apps, and it's a pretty good solution to deploy quickly an application. With Plesk Onyx, I can manage my containers and route them with a domain easily, for example my personal git is only a gogs container.
But Docker should be used only in isolated environnement and a single container can't be sold.

As far as I know only Plesk Onyx has docker management support out from the box.

It is a pretty good solution for hosting but it demands some decent knowledge which usual Hosting clients would fail to understand.

It is a good way to tap the Developer Market and Corporates.

Docker is recommended in development environment. If you want to sale docker containers, you need to run containers in cgroup read only mode so that you can run normal commands, otherwise, you won't be able to execute special commands and it will be very limited. You can't even install packages if its not in cggroup.

It has its purposes but for me, I never had any use for it. As mentioned it can be limited the commands themselves tend to be tedious.

Yes, I have a MariaDB cluster running in production with Docker. That's a good solution to run several MariaDB instances on the same server. There are also orchestrating solutions for Docker like Rancher, Shipyard or Kubernetes. But to get started, you can try to use Plesk.

Docker is a tool designed to make it easier to create, deploy, and run applications by using containers. Containers allow a developer to package up an application with all of the parts it needs, such as libraries and other dependencies, and ship it all out as one package.
It is bit like virtual machine but far different from it.
