WISP will create all new servers inside Docker containers isolated from each other, with Docker images used to provide the required packages to run the server. For example, you can change the image to use a different Java or Node.js version. WISP multi-java image can be used for Minecraft servers that might require different Java versions. There is an extensive list of supported images on Pterodactyl and Parkervcp Yolks.
