Docker in the Cloud

Book description

Enterprises are moving an increasing number of workloads to public as well as private clouds, including significant portions of their IT infrastructure. If your company is considering a similar shift, this short cookbook provides a dozen recipes for creating Docker hosts on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Compute Engine (GCE), and Microsoft Azure.

Author Sébastien Goasguen, founder of Skippbox, also shows you how to work with cloud-based container services that have recently become available: the Google Container Engine and the AWS container service. This book is ideal for developers, operators, and IT professionals.

  • Start Docker hosts on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), GCE, and Azure via command-line interfaces
  • Learn a trick for running a cloud provider command-line interface in a Docker container
  • Use Docker Machine to start hosts in EC2 and Azure
  • Grant access to your Docker images through Google Container Registry
