Overview of this book

Docker has been a game-changer when it comes to how modern applications are deployed and created. It has now grown into a key driver of innovation beyond system administration, with an impact on the world of web development. But how can you make sure you're keeping up with the innovations it's driving, or be sure you're using it to its full potential? Mastering Docker shows you how; this book not only demonstrates how to use Docker more effectively, but also helps you rethink and reimagine what's possible with it. You will cover concepts such as building, managing, and storing images, along with best practices to make you confident, before delving more into Docker security. You'll find everything related to extending and integrating Docker in new and innovative ways. Docker Compose, Docker Swarm, and Kubernetes will help you take control of your containers in an efficient manner. By the end of the book, you will have a broad, yet detailed, sense of what's possible with Docker, and how seamlessly it fits in with a range of other platforms and tools.

Running Docker in Public Clouds

So far, we have been using Digital Ocean to launch containers on a cloud-based infrastructure. In this chapter, we will look at using the tools provided by Docker to launch a Docker Swarm cluster in Amazon Web Services and also Microsoft Azure. We will then look at the container solutions offered by Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud.

The following topics will be covered in this chapter:

  • Docker Cloud
  • Amazon ECS and AWS Fargate
  • Microsoft Azure App Services
  • Kubernetes in Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and Amazon Web Services
