Docker container automation on the cloud

I am new to docker and container management.

I read about it, did some test and thought I was up and ready for it when I hit my first roadblock.

  • Running linux container on docker windows
  • Vagrant, shared folder: take advantage of inotify over NFS
  • Create docker base image for a linux iso image
  • Gitlab links to “https://gitlab/”
  • Running Gatling from container
  • unable to run docker container (image size 9 GB) from AWS instance
  • I am trying to setup a zookeeper cluster. An ideal cluster size is 2 and I want to containerize zookeeper. Now to automate this task is a problem.

    I have been scouring the net for the past several hours on how to do it, and am blocked.
    I see that we can use Mesos-Kubernetes, Mesos-Marathos, Aurora, Mesos-Chronos, combinations involving CoreOS, etc.

    How do I decide what do I go with? Which one is the best to bring up a scalable infrastructure that heavily depends on containers?

    I know its more of a design/architecture question, than a programming one. Is there any other site I can post this to, if not here?

  • How to write docker file to run a docker run command inside an image
  • Kubernetes 1.2alpha8 AWS Container Registry Integration
  • How to transfer a environment variable into a dockerfile
  • Not able to use .env file with docker-compose
  • Dockerized selenium browser cannot access Capybara test url
  • Running commands in a Docker file
  • One Solution collect form web for “Docker container automation on the cloud”

    We don’t have an independent example for running Zookeeper on Kubernetes, but I noticed that the example for running Storm on Kubernetes includes startup Zookeeper as one of the steps. It looks like the JSON config that example uses pulls a Zookeeper container that the author of the example created. I don’t know if there is an “official” Zookeeper container distribution but there are quite a few hits for “Zookeeper” in the public DockerHub registry.

    Hopefully these pointers are enough to get you started. If you have more questions, please feel free to ask on our mailing list (; join by going to and joining the google-containers list).

    I am not familiar with how to run Zookeeper on Mesos, but I know it is definitely possible.

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