Docker

You are going to be able to find the most resources and examples using Docker whenever you are working with a container orchestration software like Kubernetes. There will always some entropy when you run in a container, a containerized application will never be as purely performant as an app running directly on the OS. However, in most scenarios this loss will be negligible to the time saved in deployment, monitoring, etc.

Pros

Docker

  • Packaging components including all its dependencies so that it can be moved between different environments without worrying about environment dependencies
  • Docker images having same layers can share these layers which saves space and resources consumption
  • Components with heavy loads can be easily scaled to maintain overall performance
  • Components running inside containers are separated from other components, so if a security breach happened at one of these components, other components will still be safe

Cons

Docker

  • Running across different operating systems, containers created for Linux won't run on Windows machine and vice versa
  • Docker doesn't provide a monitoring interface itself, another layer of monitoring must be used to be able to monitor performance
  • Official documentation is not always up to date with new releases

Haven't seen any outages, fatal/unrecoverable errors in my usage so far. Enough said.

Docker Desktop. The CPU high usage is a known issue. Needs fixing. Otherwise, it is great overall. Would not use anything else still.

Alternatives Considered

Docker

We need a solution where initially we can use an OS to trigger our pipeline to be used by terraform and then later in ansible. After doing all work it automatically get exited and we can reclaim the space of our VM. So we created a gitlab pipeline and at the initial stage we defined a docker file which will be our base image and we performed all our activities inside that image to build infrastructure using terraform. Integration we have done in our gitlab pipeline and finally we remove the docker image so that the space can be reclaimed immediately.

It is the only tool in our toolset that has not [had] any issues so far. That is really a mark of reliability, and it's a testimony to how well the product is made, and a tool that does its job well is a tool well worth having. It is the base tool that I would say any organisation must have if they do scalable deployment.

Return on Investment

Docker

  • With Docker adoption, were able to reduce 40% of the time taken to complete workspace setup
  • Provided the environment packaging / configurability capability which enabled resource sharing and interoperability across teams
  • Were able to leverage off the shelf images provided by leading product companies which increased reliability and security exponently
