The DevOps 2.2 Toolkit

By: Viktor Farcic

Overview of this book

Building on The DevOps 2.0 Toolkit and The DevOps 2.1 Toolkit: Docker Swarm, Viktor Farcic brings his latest exploration of the Docker technology as he records his journey to explore two new programs, self-adaptive and self-healing systems within Docker. The DevOps 2.2 Toolkit: Self-Sufficient Docker Clusters is the latest book in Viktor Farcic’s series that helps you build a full DevOps Toolkit. This book in the series looks at Docker, the tool designed to make it easier in the creation and running of applications using containers. In this latest entry, Viktor combines theory with a hands-on approach to guide you through the process of creating self-adaptive and self-healing systems. Within this book, Viktor will cover a wide-range of emerging topics, including what exactly self-adaptive and self-healing systems are, how to choose a solution for metrics storage and query, the creation of cluster-wide alerts and what a successful self-sufficient system blueprint looks like. Work with Viktor and dive into the creation of self-adaptive and self-healing systems within Docker.

What now?

Our production cluster is up and running, and it already has most of the vertical services we'll need. The next steps will build on top of that. We'll explore Docker For AWS features that make it self-heal and, later on, discuss how we can make it self-adapt as well.

We explored how to update our cluster through UI. That is useful as a way to learn what's going on but not that much if we're planning to automate the processes. Fortunately, everything that can be done through UI can be accomplished through AWS API. We'll use it soon.

Docker folks did a great job with Docker For AWS and Azure. The result is fantastic. It is a very simple, yet very powerful tool in our belt.

I hope you're hosting your Swarm cluster in AWS or Azure (both behave almost the same). If you're not, it will be very useful to use Docker For AWS for a while. That...
