In Detail

So hot off the presses, the latest buzz that has been on the tip of everyone's tongues and the topic of almost any conversation that includes containers these days is Docker! Docker has been a game-changer when it comes to virtualization. With this course, you will go from just being the person in the office who hears that buzz to the one who is tooting it around every day.

The first module will help you get familiarized with the fundamentals of Docker. The second module will show you how to create, deploy, and manage a virtual network for connecting containers spanning single or multiple hosts.

The purpose of our fourth module, Securing Docker, is to provide techniques and enhance your skills to secure Docker containers easily and efficiently. Finally, you'll see how to deploy Docker in production and three interesting GUI applications: Shipyard, Panamax, and Tutum.

      Comments about oreilly Docker: Creating Structured Containers:

      This book is nothing but an outdated command reference. Many of the examples are flat out wrong and they use incorrect names for products and services. The author(s) lead you astray from the installation chapter on.
