Docker benefits for kong

hi - i am deploying kong on azure and considering use of docker - could anyone comment on what the benefits of docker might be for kong? thanks

The main benefit I see from using Docker does not come from “using it with Kong”, but from “using it in general”.

The abstraction layer it provides simplifies/hides some of the complexity of managing infrastructure. If you are already using Docker for other things (for example if you are using Kubernetes) then using Docker to deploy Kong will make sense.
