Can on premises servers image be used as docker image.?

I have been working with docker from few days. Its really a good experience. As a part of my new assignment I been installing and creating an environment similar to on premises server, which seems to be very complicated. Is there any way that I can somehow take a image of the server and use it as docker image?

If at all its Yes? Please be kind enough to explain how?

Yes, you can work with docker-compose, it’s really good to manage your containers, or just run: “docker pull mysql”, “docker pull mongo”, “docker pull php”, you can also do a search “docker search php7” , etc …

Example of how you can use docker with Dockerfile
