Docker Orchestration

Key FeaturesExplore the new features added to the core Docker Engine to make multi-container orchestration easyLeverage tools such as Docker Machine, Swarm, Compose, and third-party tools such as Kubernetes, Mesosphere, and CoreOS to orchestrate containersUse docker compose with swarm and apply rolling updates for zero downtime deploymentsBook DescriptionDocker orchestration is what you need in your transition from deploying containers individually on a single host to deploying complex multi-container apps on many machines.This book covers the new orchestration features of Docker 1.12 and helps you efficiently build, test, and deploy your application using Docker. You will also understand the importance of building multi-container applications using Docker Compose. You will be introduced to the building blocks for multi-host Docker clusters such as registry, overlay networks, and shared storage using practical examples.Moving on, we discuss core tools such as Docker Machine, Swarm, and Compose in order to enhance your orchestration skills. We’ll teach you how to set up a swarm using the decentralized building block. Next, we’ll guide you on how to make the most out of the in-built orchestration feature of Docker engine and you’ll use third-party tools such as Kubernetes, Mesosphere, and CoreOS to orchestrate your existing process. Finally, you will learn to deploy cluster hosts on cloud services and automate your infrastructure.What you will learnBuild scalable, reliable services with DockerSee how to manage a service in Docker using Docker Swarm, Kubernetes, and MesosphereDiscover simpler orchestration tools such as CoreOS/Fleet and Rancher CattleUnderstand cluster-wide logging, system monitoring, and troubleshootingBuild, test, and deploy containers using Continuous IntegrationDeploy cluster hosts on cloud services and automate your infrastructureAbout the AuthorRandall Smith is a Sr. Systems Administrator for Adams State University.
