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:

  • Using SemanticUI with Docker
  • Docker tomcat8-jre8 hacked?
  • Difference between nodejs v0.12 and v5.x distributions
  • How can I add the used base (FROM) image to a docker image
  • Why docker (Container-based technologies) are useful
  • Pycharm not showing all files from django external library
  • 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?

  • OpenJDK 1.8.0 in Docker container has different timezone than /etc/timezone and from the host
  • RabbitMQ inside docker won't end gracefully and cannot reconnect
  • Docker-Compose can't connect to Docker Daemon
  • How to stop a docker container which started with `--restart=always`
  • What does it mean sha256 in Docker, where are directories of layers of image?
  • How to auto scale docker containers in a regular cloud server?
  • 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.
