Mastering Docker - Third Edition

By: Russ McKendrick, Scott Gallagher

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.

The Cloud Native Computing Foundation

We discussed The Cloud Native Computing Foundation briefly in Chapter 9, Docker and Kubernetes. The Cloud Native Computing Foundation, or CNCF, for short, was founded to provide a vendor-neutral home for projects that allow you to manage your containers and microservices architectures.

Its membership includes Docker, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Red Hat, Oracle, VMWare, and Digital Ocean to name a few. In June 2018, the Linux Foundation reported that CNCF had 238 members. These members not only contribute projects but also engineering time, code, and resources.
