Docker Provisioner vs Docker Provider

The Vagrant Docker provisioner can automatically install Docker, pull Docker containers and configure containers.

i.e. it helps prepare the environment (i.e. automatic installations).

The Provider is a virtualization solution – e.g. Virtualbox, VMWare.

So a Docker Provider would use Docker as the virtualization solution.
