Jisto's unobtrusiveness is largely due to its use of Docker containers. "Docker has nice APIs and makes the process much easier, both for us as developers and for Jisto customers," Biberman explains. "Docker is very portable—if you can run it on Linux, you can run it on Docker—and it doesn't care if you're running it on a local data center, a private cloud, or on Amazon. With containers, we don't need to do something complicated like run a VM inside another VM. Docker gives us a lightweight way to let people use the environment that's already set up."

Clojure is a dialect of the Lisp programming language. It is a dynamic functional general purpose programming language that uses the Java Virtual Runtime as its platform, combining the approachability and interactive development of a scripting language with an efficient and robust infrastructure for multithreaded programming. Clojure features a rich set of immutable, persistent data structures, first-class functions and dynamic typing. Clojure programs are composed of expressions and written in terms of abstractions.
