Running RStudio Shiny as a Docker container on AWS?

Has anybody looked into the possibility of running an instance of a RStudio Shiny server as a Docker container on the Amazon AWS cloud?

I have seen a document specifying how to instantiate RStudio on a different cloud provider here:

  • I can't run rails console with Docker and Passenger/nginx image
  • Why won't my docker-cmd execute with sh?
  • dante-sever fail to bind ip by interface name in docker container
  • Which Tensorflow Docker image to use?
  • Does Docker support restarting containers every X seconds
  • Adding sphinx container docker-compose shows an error
  • http://www.r-bloggers.com/running-rstudio-via-docker-in-the-cloud
    http://www.magesblog.com/2014/09/running-rstudio-via-docker-in-cloud.html

    What I would like to know, more specifically, is if there are any documents explaining how to have a running instance of an RStudio Shiny server on AWS inside a Docker container, authenticated so that it can at least read files from a AWS account and use them for interactive Shiny visualizations. Beyond that also be able to write results back to EC2.

    Any pointers or major technical difficulties that people anticipate?

  • Docker Compose Expose Spark Worker UI Ports Dynamically to Host When Scaling
  • Use --build-arg value in Dockerfile FROM parameter
  • Linux command output as input at particular location of another command.?
  • How to push image from private registry to hub.docker.com?
  • Error creating DigitalOcean droplet using docker-machine
  • Docker-machine - IP address conflict
  • One Solution collect form web for “Running RStudio Shiny as a Docker container on AWS?”

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