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:

  • Docker - Problems with the vocabs
  • How to import a database into a Docker container using docker-compose
  • Running a bash script inside a Docker container
  • How to startup up services on a Docker image?
  • Permissions error when using cli in Jboss wildfly and docker
  • How can I run Win32OLE calls from ubuntu?
  • 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?

  • Cannot push images to Dockerhub
  • Install Python mysqlclient on Ubuntu docker container
  • How to send logs from tomcat docker container to catalina.out?
  • Increment command timeout in EBS from the Dockerrun.aws.json -AWS
  • Using git clone in a Dockerfile Produces empty working directory
  • Docker's healthcheck on Windows container and exit code (“||” linux equivalent)
  • 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.
