Docker is having a  client-server architecture. The Docker client talks to the Docker daemon. Docker daemon helps in building, running, and distributing your Docker containers. The Docker client and daemon can co-exist on the same system or on different systems. This client-daemon connection is done via REST API.

The Docker daemon

The Docker daemon is also known as docker engine manages docker objects such as images, containers, networks, and volumes. Communication with other docker daemons also happens through this. Docker daemon is started by the command “dockerd”.Docker daemon talks with the kernel manages system calls for creation, running, destroying, etc of containers.

The Docker client

The Docker client is the utility we use when we use commands such as docker run. The Docker client sends these requests to Docker daemon, which does the rest. One Docker client can connect with more than one Docker daemon.

Docker registries

A Docker registry is where the Docker images are stored. Docker Hub is a public registry and docker searches for images on Docker Hub by default. Other registries are Docker Datacenter (DDC), which also includes the Docker Trusted Registry (DTR). Whenever docker pull or docker run commands are executed, the required images are pulled from the registry. We can also push the newly created docker images to Docker registry.
