Updated September 29, 2018 11:53:37The top five most popular ways to deploy docker images to an environment can vary widely depending on what you’re looking to build and how much money you’re willing to invest.
For starters, there are those who have built Docker images using Kubernetes, Mesos or Mesos-based virtual machines.
These virtual machines can be run as a cluster on a network or be deployed as a single container on a dedicated cluster.
This article explores these popular methods to deploy a Docker image and the pros and cons of each.
The first step is to determine which type of virtual machine you want to deploy your Docker image on.
Some of the more popular options are:Kubernete or Meson.
Kubernicers can run Docker containers as their main operating system.
For example, a Kubernicer running Docker Core can have multiple containers, each with its own user and password.
It is important to note that a Kuubernicer can run multiple containers on the same host, but this is not the case for Docker images.
Instead, a Docker container is just a Dockerfile , a set of instructions for running a Docker run command on a particular host.
This means that a Docker host can be assigned multiple instances of a Kubernnicer or Kubernedit, allowing for a number of container instances to be used.
With Kubernics, you can have several instances of the same Kubernel running on a single host.
For instance, if you want the Kubernetic to run multiple instances, you need to run the Kubernnik(kubnicks) and the Kuubernik(kubernedits) commands.
This is similar to the process for creating a Docker Image.
Once you have determined which type, you are now ready to deploy an image.
There are three steps to deploy the image, all of which require a few minutes to complete:Using the Docker HubTo deploy your image, use the DockerHub to create a new Docker Hub instance on your local machine.
You will need to have the docker-compose.yml file available on your Docker host.
In the example below, we have created a new Hub instance, using a Docker Hub named “bob”:This will deploy a new Kubernik image for the “bobby” Hub instance.
You can also deploy a Kubers image using the Docker compose.yaml file:Using MesonOn the other hand, you have to create an instance of Meson in the same Docker host as your Docker Hub:This creates a new Meson instance on the Docker host, with the Docker Name “bub”:This is a simple container image for a single Meson container.
This can be easily replicated with Docker Swarm, but it is important that you follow these steps to create the appropriate containers for each container.
To create a Meson, go to the Meson tab in the Docker hub:The first tab contains all the containers for the Mesons that you can use to run.
In this example, we created two Meson instances for the docker host.
To create more containers, you’ll need to go to each container individually, as follows:Using Docker SwarmTo run your Meson image, you must have a Docker Swarm instance running on your docker host that is named “somedomain”.
This is an instance on a separate docker host, which you can create by going to the Docker Swarm tab:To run an image, simply navigate to the image URL in the dashboard, as shown below:The final tab contains the container images you need for your image to run:You should now have a working Docker image that can be used to build Docker containers.
