Overview of this book

No doubt Docker Containers are the future of highly-scalable software systems and have cost and runtime efficient supporting infrastructure. But learning it might look complex as it comes with many technicalities. This is where The Docker Workshop will help you. Through this workshop, you’ll quickly learn how to work with containers and Docker with the help of practical activities.? The workshop starts with Docker containers, enabling you to understand how it works. You’ll run third party Docker images and also create your own images using Dockerfiles and multi-stage Dockerfiles. Next, you’ll create environments for Docker images, and expedite your deployment and testing process with Continuous Integration. Moving ahead, you’ll tap into interesting topics and learn how to implement production-ready environments using Docker Swarm. You’ll also apply best practices to secure Docker images and to ensure that production environments are running at maximum capacity. Towards the end, you’ll gather skills to successfully move Docker from development to testing, and then into production. While doing so, you’ll learn how to troubleshoot issues, clear up resource bottlenecks and optimize the performance of services. By the end of this workshop, you’ll be able to utilize Docker containers in real-world use cases.

Preface

Managing Swarm with Swarmpit

The command line provides an efficient and useful way for users to control their Swarm. This can get a little confusing for some users if your services and nodes multiply as need increases. One way to help with managing and monitoring your Swarm is by using a web interface such as the one provided by Swarmpit to help you administer your different environments.

As you'll see shortly, Swarmpit provides an easy-to-use web interface that allows you to manage most aspects of your Docker Swarm instances, including the stacks, secrets, services, volumes networks, and configurations.

Note

This chapter will only touch on the use of Swarmpit, but if you would like more information on the application, the following site should provide you with further details: https://swarmpit.io.

Swarmpit is a simple-to-use installation Docker image that, when run on your system, creates its swarm of services deployed in your environment to run the management and...
