Difference between Docker Image and Container?

Docker is a platform that runs each and every application segregated and securely by the use of kernel containerization feature. It is a highly efficient and lightweight platform in terms of resources it uses. It uses the host underlying kernel containerization feature rather than creating its own hypervisor.

Docker Image is a set of files which has no state, whereas Docker Container is the instantiation of Docker Image. In other words, Docker Container is the run time instance of images.
