With Docker deployment, smaller images are usually better.
But your docker images will keep changing. And you just don’t remember to check it for a while. Then someday you happen to find out some huge images in your deployment pipeline. Feel uncomfortable, don’t you? Any thoughts about how to improve it?
My answer is like always: Monitor That! And Get Slack notifications.
Enclosed is my approach. Check it out! And discuss with me, my friends.
Nowadays when people setup and configure services, probably nobody will enjoy doing it in a manual way.
Here comes a new question. How do you automate the process, and make it fast and reliable?
Wrap up some ssh scripts? Leverage CM(configuration management tools) like chef, ansible, or pupet? Use docker run? It’s great that we now have many options. But, as you may guess, not all of them are equally good.
You want a headache-free solution, right? And you also want it real quick, do you? Then You Can Not Miss docker-compose! Here are some useful tips and lessons learned using docker-compose.
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.
