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.

There is a lot more to Kubernetes than we have covered in this chapter, so please don't think this is all there is. After discussing the origins of Kubernetes, we looked at how you can enable it on your local machine using Docker for Mac or Docker for Windows.

We then discussed some basic usage of kubectl before looking at running how we can use docker stack commands to launch our applications as we did for Docker Swarm.

At the end of the chapter, we discussed Kompose, which is a tool under the Kubernetes project. It helps you convert your Docker Compose files for use with Kubernetes, allowing you to get a head start on moving your applications to pure Kubernetes.

In the next chapter, we are going to take a look at Docker on public clouds, such as Amazon Web Services, along...
