A Docker Swarm is a group of either physical or virtual machines that are running the Docker application and that has been configured to join together in a cluster. Once a group of machines has been clustered together, you can still run the Docker commands that you're used to, but they will now be carried out by the machines in your cluster. The activities of the cluster are controlled by a swarm manager, and machines that have joined the cluster are referred to as nodes.
