Abstract: Virtual machines have been the main source of deployment of production ready applications since the beginning of cloud computing, but virtualization has its negative effects on resource management, due to this operating system-level virtualization called containers are gaining popularity in recent times. Software Visualization in Cloud Computing allows the single computer server to run one or more virtual environments. It is quite similar to virtualizations but here it abstracts the software installation procedure and creates a virtual software out of it. In software virtualizations, an application will be installed which will perform the further task. One of the software is physical while others are virtual as it allows 2 or more operating system using only one computer. Docker is used to separate applications from infrastructure so we can deliver software quickly. With Docker, we can manage your infrastructure in the same ways you manage your applications. Software virtualization can be achieved through this platform. Using Docker containers software virtualization is made simple and results are provided in this paper.
