Docker generally refers to Docker Engine. Docker is a platform for encapsulating and running application code quickly. Docker Engine is the underlying software technology, atop which components run numerous container services, from development to maintenance to storage.

Despite being the most widely used container service, Docker features such an array of components that they can be difficult to keep straight. Take this quiz to see how well you know Docker components and services.
