Intro to Docker for CMS

Docker is an exciting technology which allows developers to deploy software in a highly portable and repeatable environment, thus easing a path to production. Using Docker, one can:
  • Deploy applications such as Drupal, Wordpress and more in their own environments. Does your Drupal deployment require PHP 5.4, but your Wordpress deployment requires PHP 5.5? No problem.
  • Easily test upgrades without impacting production, as well as provide a way to rollback.
  • Migrate an application from one host to another
  • Efficiently use host resources- multiple Docker containers run on a single server, leveraging your resources efficiently.
  • Help keep your server secure. Due to container isolation, an issue in one containers need not affect other containers, or your host server.
In this session the attendee will learn:
  • how to install Docker
  • how to install an application using Docker (Drupal and/or Wordpress)
  • how to perform basic tasks using Docker
  • how to upgrade an application
  • how to migrate an application from one host to another
