Deployment with Docker

By: Srdjan Grubor

Overview of this book

Deploying Docker into production is considered to be one of the major pain points in developing large-scale infrastructures, and the documentation available online leaves a lot to be desired. With this book, you will learn everything you wanted to know to effectively scale your deployments globally and build a resilient, scalable, and containerized cloud platform for your own use. The book starts by introducing you to the containerization ecosystem with some concrete and easy-to-digest examples; after that, you will delve into examples of launching multiple instances of the same container. From there, you will cover orchestration, multi-node setups, volumes, and almost every relevant component of this new approach to deploying services. Using intertwined approaches, the book will cover battle-tested tooling, or issues likely to be encountered in real-world scenarios, in detail. You will also learn about the other supporting components required for a true PaaS deployment and discover common options to tie the whole infrastructure together. At the end of the book, you learn to build a small, but functional, PaaS (to appreciate the power of the containerized service approach) and continue to explore real-world approaches to implementing even larger global-scale services.

And with that, we have reached the end of our book! In this chapter, we have covered various things that you will need to take your small service and make it global through aggressive automation, splitting things into multiple availability zones, and adding monitoring to your infrastructure. Since cloud technologies are also relatively young, we have more importantly included some tips on how to evaluate emerging tooling as objectively as you can to ensure that your projects have the greatest likelihood of success with the tooling ecosystem changes that will be common for the foreseeable future. By assuming that things will change in the future and having the tools to handle those changes, we can be ready to embrace anything that gets thrown at us.
