vulcand - quick note

Posted at — Sep 24, 2015

I like vulcand for a number of reasons:

While it’s still in BETA the documentation is really weak. The sample docker files demonstrate port forwarding 8181 and 8182 but never really tell you what they do. When I first read this I assumed that I needed to have a port redirect from the firewall or some other proxy in front. WRONG!

It just so happens the documentation is just bad. This doc is also not great, however, they demonstrate forwarding ports 443 and 80 in addition.

Alternatives to vulcand could have been nginx (Russian) and HAProxy (France).  Trust but verify? I’ll start with vulcand; thank you.
