AlgoTrader uses Docker for installation and deployment.
Docker is an open-source platform for building, shipping and running distributed applications.
With Docker, all AlgoTrader components can be installed with one single command and the entire installation takes just a few minutes.
Docker builds AlgoTrader components into lightweight containers that are platform independent.
Docker is available for Windows, Mac and Linux, and the AlgoTrader Docker installation procedure is identical under each operating system. This means that a trading strategy developed on Windows will behave in exactly the same manner when deployed on a Linux server.
