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:

  • Improve Spring-Boot startup in Docker
  • Cannot access a Kubernetes postgresql service from the outside
  • bash script command “trap” doesn't work in docker container
  • Install docker 1.2 on Amazon Linux AMI release 2014.03
  • DataStax Enterprise on Docker: fails to start due to /hadoop/conf directory not being writable
  • Docker Container DNS resolution
  • 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?

  • /etc/hosts file of a docker container gets overwritten
  • Labelling images in docker
  • How do I compile python for Alpine?
  • How to change docker default ip binding?
  • Docker compose mysql reachable on port 3306
  • How to dynamically set environment variables of linked containers?
  • 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.
