Docker is a popular application containment environment on GNU/Linux that is available on FreeBSD as of June, 2015. Docker on FreeBSD relies heavily on ZFS, jail and the 64bit Linux compatibility layer that was introduced in June, 2015.

Docker's currently broken. We are working on a current, executable version. Help is welcome. Current status:

Limitations of the 64bit Linux compatibility subsystem will impact some Linux ABI containers and your testing and feedback is appreciated to help resolve any such issues.

The freebsd-virtualization mailing list, as well as the IRC channels #freebsd-docker and #bhyve on are good places to participate.
