The concept of virtualization is older than one could think. It started somewhere in the 1960s, and it is still one of the most interesting, and still developing topics these days. This thesis relates to the newest hype called container-based virtualization.

After the related technological introduction, the installation of a fully functional OpenStack environment is detailed. The installed system is a special one, because it is customized to use the Docker hypervisor plugin which provides a much lightweight virtualization compared to the default one. The subsequent chapters detail the trial of the installed system, and also investigate the features of it.

After that the description of the Docker registry begins, with the introduction to the basic terminology. The push and pull process of the latest registry is described, and a new deployment mechanism is also proposed which utilizes the Torrent technology to deliver the images. Then the implementation of the proposed mechanism is detailed, including the related testing environment.
