GDAL in Docker
One command to run any GDAL tool on the command-line wherever docker is available:
docker run -ti --rm -v $(pwd):/data klokantech/gdal /bin/bash

docker run -ti --rm -v $(pwd):/data klokantech/gdal gdalinfo yourfile.tif

It has been made to simplify distribution of MapTiler Pro to Klokan Technologies GmbH customers who can easily use the MapTiler with docker in a similar way.
Deployment is then extremely easy on computing clouds such as Google Compute Engine or Amazon EC2 as well as on any developer's laptop.
