IBM has published a very nice document about Docker on the mainframe.
PDF download as well as via Knowledge Center. You can read one of the best container/Docker introductions I've seen on the Internet, as well as a good coverage of basic concepts around containers and Docker in the context of Z.

It has been signaled earlier this year, now it has been announced: Docker Enterprise Edition is available for Z. Version 17.06.1 has now been made available, and not only is it a new version for x86, but it also supports Z as "managed-to" platform. A lot of work went into this, and this is what the journey starts with:
- the engine of Docker Enterprise Edition will run on Linux on z Systems
- Docker Trusted Registry (DTR) can handle s390x images (while DTR runs on x86)
- Docker Universal Control Plane (UCP) can manage s390x nodes (while the UCP UI runs on x86)
