Docker Cloud

Software containerization & deployment services

4.6/5 (220 reviews)

Docker Cloud Overview

Docker Cloud is an application development solution and hosted registry service that allows users to build and test Dockerized application images. The platform provides tools that help users set up and manage a host infrastructure, alongside application lifecycle features that enable users to automate the deployment (and redeployment) of services created from images.

The platform uses the hosted Docker Cloud Registry, which allows users to publish Dockerized images on the internet either privately or publicly. Docker Cloud allows users to store pre-built images, as well as link to source codes so it can build the code into Docker images, and optionally test the resulting images before pushing them to a repository.

Docker Cloud allows users to link to their infrastructure or cloud services provider in order to provision new nodes automatically. Once the nodes are set up, users can deploy images directly from Docker Cloud repositories. Images are just a single layer in containerized applications.

Once an image is created, users can deploy services (which are composed of one or more containers created from an image), or use Docker Cloud’s stackfiles to combine it with other services and microservices, to form a full application. Users are able to create teams to manage access control to the organization's repos, applications, and infrastructure.

Containers are really helpful

Used Daily for 2+ years

It's a great way to test new technologies in a robust manner.

Pros

Ability to spin up software with just a few clicks. Initial setup doesn't require to much experience. Downloading new images and containers creation gives a lot of joy. It's a great way to perform POC and experiments as if they appear to be invaluable the removal from the device is simple and doesn't leave any orphaned dependency packages. Scaling services through Swarm allows to greatly improve performance of applications that can work in such environment. There is a huge variety of systems on which it could be run.

Cons

By default the docker service storage is kept on /var (on linux systems) which doesn't usually tend have a lot of free space. The amount of documentation available could be overwhelming in the beginning. If you would change the storage driver on an existing docker environment you will loose all your containers and images. If you would like to keep them you need to import and export them manually. There are some security concerns and it's easy to expose yourself if you don't know what you're doing.

Docker Swarm makes management of cluster super easy

Used Daily for 2+ years
Reviewed on 2019/05/06
Review Source: Capterra

I lover the philosophy behind the design of Docker and Docker Swarm. As a developer, my experience with using Docker was great and takes a lot of headaches away from the developer.

Pros

Docker Swarm makes setting up a server cluster very easy. With just a few commands, can setup a cluster and start deploying services.
Compare to Kubernetes, it reduces the time to setup things like the Api server, the cluster db, and other components. Everything just came with the tool.

Cons

Not a lot of discussion about Docker Swarm compare to Kubernetes. Community is a lot smaller.
Not a lot of cloud services available using Swarm other than Docker Enterprise. Pretty much all the cloud service providers have Kubernetes support.

Dockertize your platform right now!

All my current infrastructures of my clients are based on docker, I have been able to create database clusters with maria DB and several nginx using docker, likewise I have been able to create API's and micro services with containers that I have created myself

Pros

Docker has proven to be a fairly efficient and stable virtualization platform for productive environments of high stress and traffic flow.

The compatibility with other work tools is almost 100% guaranteed and also allows testing and deployments at speeds never before reached by infrastructure departments. One of the most significant advantages is the large repository of images of applications that are available in the docker hub.

Without a doubt, of the best tools that I use in my day to day

Cons

It takes great knowledge of linux and infrastructure to use docker, it is not a tool for beginners, if you do not have the basic knowledge of a LAMP or LEMP for example, you can not deploy a disconnected application in docker, much less create base clusters of data, among many other things.

Time saving, money saving, two great benefits !

Pros

The community is highly reactive, the software is stable, can be easily used, even if your are not a technical guru.
Docker simplify usage of tools, apps.
No more worries about which version of this lib, or this framework to install and run an app.
It is easier to try things too, you get the container, you run it, and you test, no more complicated install, no more OS breakage because you have to install some new version of a lib who break the rest of your setup !
Last but not least, it's simple to deploy and use with some majors cloud hosting, it is a great tool for starting businesses, and you have can scale if you need to, start small and save money, and if you need, go big.

Cons

You have to choose or manage well your container, the main trouble to my point of view is to have too old container, meaning you need to update your operating system to have the more recent security feature, if you have an old operating system you are vulnerable.
People often don't think about that aspect, and the risk is to have lot of apps running on old OS.

OS level Containerization

Used Daily for 2+ years
Reviewed on 2019/04/27
Review Source: Capterra

Docker Enterprise is a leading container platform because of the feature and customization provided by it. We are deploying the multiple client server without any major effort. Docker helps to deliver the release of the product with better compliance. High level encryption of images and communication between cluster make the container secure.

Pros

Docker is a powerful tool for containerization. It gives the platform for build, test and deploy application using container. The Docker container helps in adopting the DevOps methodology that helps in rapid release. Docker container helps to isolate the application which helps to execute the consistent test results. Dockers helps to optimize the development and operational process. Docker Enterprise provides a one stop solution to all problems from its dashboard.

Cons

Docker daemon configuration for container and images is a tricky part and it should be simplified. Managing the Swarm and Kubernetes for orchestration is a complex part with using Docker API.
