Deploy a docker container to production

I have create a docker image on my dev machine and tested my RAILS code on it.
The container uses code from the host this way :

docker run -v [/path/to/dir/to/mount/on/local/machine/]:[/desired/path/in/docker/] -p [port to forward] -i -t [name of image] /bin/bash

Now I would like to push the container to a preproduct environment and then a production environment.

    Are you deploying a rails app? I would take a look at Dokku which is basically a self hosted version of heroku.

    If you want to use docker directly I would take a look at using a deployment script of some type to help you with this. Basically it can login via ssh, git clone the code to a directory and then run the docker image with the new directory (stopping any existing instances). But again Dokku makes this way simpler.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
