Native Docker Clustering with Swarm

Key FeaturesUnleash the power of operating Docker Swarm, Docker Machine and Docker Compose together.Get to grips with Docker Swarm, one of the key components of the Docker ecosystemA comprehensive guide that focuses on Swarm, a super-easy orchestration tool from Docker.Book DescriptionSwarm serves as one of the crucial components of the Docker ecosystem and offers a native solution so you can deploy and manage Docker containers. With the recent improvements to Swarm, it’s turning out to be the preferred choice for Docker clustering compared to other alternatives.We will start by demonstrating Docker Swarm features with a local installation, then we’ll proceed through the Docker tools to create a distributed Swarm infrastructure. We’ll discover how Swarm works internally and its theoretical foundations, like its architecture, discovery services and overlay networks before learning how to operate a Swarm cluster. The focus will then shift to deploying massive applications and a huge number of containers over it. Furthermore we will explore more advanced considerations which include scheduling, high availability, security, and platform scalability.By the end of the book, you will understand how Swarm wonderfully integrates with the Docker ecosystem and doesn’t require to re-architect your containerized apps to adapt to another platform.What you will learnDeploy your real-time app on SwarmUnderstand Swarm’s features and the working of discovery mechanismsOperate clusters of Docker enginesConfigure high availability and failover mechanismsExplore various security considerations for Swarm clustersCreate and manage Swarms on the top of OpenStack MagnumAbout the AuthorFabrizio Soppelsa works as an Escalations Engineer for Mirantis Inc., the Pure Play OpenStack Company. Docker activist and advocate since Docker 0.3 and author of several articles on the Docker tools in three languages, he is also a concrete contributor to the projects, especially Machine. He currently lives in Moscow, Russia, with his spider.Chanwit Kaewkasi is an Assistant Professor at the School of Computer Engineering, Suranaree University of Technology, Thailand. Chanwit started contributing to the Docker Swarm project since 0.1 where he co-designed and implemented the strategy filters, the ZooKeeper discovery, and other features. He currently serves as Docker Swarm Maintainer and Docker Captain.
