Watching out for Docker

Posted at — Oct 27, 2014

After an intense 2 weeks of deep dives into everything docker I find myself with a very short list of URLs that I need to monitor:Docker - of courseCoreOS - naturallyfig - coolboot2docker - requireddeis - sighkubernetes - ditto x2Rancher - used it when it was very promising.Rancher is making a comebackPhusion has a lot to say about container contents but it’s very scary.Building good docker images - some ideas about creating good docker images.Reverse proxy with nginx.Docker patterns.Continuous integration with DroneIOsystemd alarm clockcitadel docker APIProject Atomic, DokkuVulcand, zero downtime deployWeaveDNS is one way to make service discovery easier. Weave is a network partitioning tool that could also be useful. And some boot2docker DNS.multi-server docker.Under Reviewkitematic - docker on your macbowline - build server and UI for dockerartifactory - recently added docker registry to artifactoryUPDATE: flynn - I discarded my interest in flynn. The previous pre-release was in Aug and now another that uses Docker 1.3.1. If memory serves there was a strong dependency on a fix that was supposed to be available in Docker 1.3.0 so it’s worth reviewing again. Flynn’s website still indicates it’s not ready for production.The latest version of Docker is 1.3.0. There were a number of interesting features added to this version but nothing that is actually a game changer. There was one bug that I reported that seems to be fixed so I can take advantage of the patch in the CoreOS alpha channel.** although docker is getting considerable mindshare I’m starting to rediscover my interest in appscale and google app engine.
