Using Docker, deployments are more reliable and faster than ever. But how about the docker images build? Containers don’t have any silver bullets. It shifts installation instability from deployment cycle to image build cycle.
I would expect a general solution for the verification of all docker images build. And it should work across different projects. This means less time and effort. Certainly, save money!
NeuVector is a startup company in Bay Area, focusing on run-time container security. In our previous post, we find docker-bench-security useful to avoid many common Docker pitfalls.
NeuVector helps to address some Docker security issues, which are not well resolved before. e.g, intelligently detect malicious traffic within servers of our critical envs, visualize network topology with large scale of docker envs, etc.
docker-bench-security is a script that checks for dozens of common best-practices around deploying Docker containers in production.
We use Docker to save effort, not the other way around. Try docker-bench-security to avoid common pitfalls using Docker. It’s provided by Docker, Inc. Totally free and constantly polished.
Enclosed is all you need to know, in order to understand and use the tool.
Running daemon services in foreground helps for trouble shooting. Also a very useful trick for container environments.
Here is the general practice. And some real examples of popular services, like Apache, MySQL and Jenkins.
We have changed daily CI tests from VM to Docker, ever since early last year. It is just awesome! Way too fast and cost-effective.
But one annoying thing keeps dragging us slow. The Docker daemon server runs into low disk capacity quite often.
Nowadays people are happy to use community Docker images. It’s super fast and easy to setup infrastructure, compared to old black days. But watch out security risks hidding inside!
Ignoring them could result in serious damages sooner or later. How to easily identity security holes inside docker images?
Sandbox indicates an isolated and autonomous play-yard, where anyone can do their own code build, deployment and debugging locally. It won’t effect anything outside. Ideally it should not be effected by outer world either. This is especially useful for new member on-board, daily development, QA cycle, etc.
How to get an easy and reliable sandbox for your projects? Check it out.
No doubt container is a breakthrough technology in DevOps world. How to effectively build and use docker image to speed up our deployment? This would be important to in both our development and release cycle. Here are some our experience and sharing. Check it out, buddy!
