Pros and Cons

  • It is advanced tool for balancing loads and managing routes.
  • It is easy to edit container contents.
  • Alerts are very useful which helps us handling the entire network.
  • I am mostly satisfied with all of its features but I have faced issues in the continuous data storage no doubt they offer features like Dockers Data Volumes but still there is much room for improvement.
  • Moreover, I am a happy user of this platform.

Pros and Cons

  • The OSX management tool is simple to use.
  • It is nice to be able to use custom repositories.
  • The service runs mostly in the background now, and I don't have to tinker with it .
  • Sometimes issues arise running images, that are only cleared by removing the cache and restarting the OSX app.
  • It is easy to build up a lot of containers that aren't being used, and you have to manually clear them up.
  • It would be nice to have a better graphical interface to see what is going on internally.

Pros and Cons

  • Isolation of dependencies.
  • "Black box" services like databases and packaged applications.
  • Infrastructure as code.
  • The CLI can take some getting used to if you aren't familiar with it.
  • For running many Docker containers locally, you'll need a lot of disk and RAM.
  • There are a lot of concepts to be familiar with when learning Docker, and the documentation could be more beginner-focused.

Pros and Cons

  • The best way to eliminate typical dev/testing/prod environment issue.
  • Simplified the deployment practice for most service systems.
  • Also contains a large number of pre-built images includes most frequently used services, Nginx, MySQL, etc. Implemented a new way to set up a service with nearly zero impact on the host.
  • Different running model compares to traditional software development/deployment method
  • Introduced a little complicated management of networking/storage
  • Difficult to remote manage/monitoring
  • Resource sharing between containers or hosts is complex
  • The docker hub is limited to a free user, can only have one private image

Pros and Cons

  • Containerization - allowing multiple micro-services to function together without in-depth orchestration at the VM level.
  • Rapid deployment - a developer with appropriate access can simply push to the correct remote and the deploy happens automatically from there
  • Decouples provisioning from VM administration - allows containers to be deployed (more) regardless of VM set up.
  • Containers are often opaque - if a container doesn't work out of the box, it's messy to fix.
  • Logging is complexified by the multiple containers and logs are often not piped to places you expect them to be.
  • Networking is complexified due to internal port mapping between containers, etc.

Pros and Cons

  • Creating complex containers using docker files which automate a lot of DevOps manual labor
  • Having some preconfigured containers to do fast tests
  • The swarm takes away a lot of the work you would need to do for high availability
  • Kitematic UI is still very limited in functionality
  • Containers on Windows are somewhat hit and miss, Linux is strongly recommended
  • Swarm interface is mostly command line
  • Some network limitations (like remote client IP passthrough)

Pros and Cons

  • Simple interface for defining and building an application runtime environment. This makes applications easy to inspect because aspects like exposed ports and environment variables can be defined declaratively and consistently.
  • Local environment parity with production. Docker manages dependency installation and allows you to easily run apps locally in the same environment as they run in production, giving you confidence that your app will work as expected when deployed and making configuration-related bugs easier to reproduce.
  • Makes applications easy to publish and distribute. Docker's image registry makes it extremely easy to publish your applications and distribute them securely. This makes deployment much simpler and provides version control for your application artifacts, making rollbacks very easy.
  • Docker has a bit of a learning curve, and it takes some time to become familiar with the tooling and syntax. Transitioning an existing architecture to docker can represent a significant investment.
  • Docker attempts to provide some level of cross-host container orchestration via swarm, but it falls short of third-party solutions like Kubernetes.
  • We occasionally run into stability issues when the docker daemon is subjected to high load (many applications starting/stopping frequently). In these cases, docker hangs and we have to restart or replace the node.

Pros and Cons

  • Deterministic application state and deployments.
  • Consistent version history for previous builds.
  • Easy distribution mechanisms across the team.
  • Docker does update quickly, sometimes the updates to the engine break older container images.
  • Some of the changes to the Dockerfile structure are confusing and incompatible with older versions, challenging teams.

Pros and Cons

  • abstracting the virtualization aspects so that I don't need to know every detail (even to the point of not needing to know if Docker is using a VM behind the scenes or not)
  • providing a simple yet powerful configuration scheme
  • huge selection of base containers and easy way to derive from them
  • automated builds through Docker Hub
  • multiple configuration file versions can be a little confusing
  • experienced some downtime with Docker Hub, though it was cleared up quickly
  • not really a con of Docker, but it takes some time to learn the concepts of containers and adapt to that way of thinking. Perhaps it would be helpful to have a "Docker for Old School Sys Admins" guide that helps explain some of the differences in concepts and execution when working with containers.

Pros and Cons

  • Environment consistency via full application and operating system encapsulation
  • Securing software runtime by ensuring that the whole environment is easily and quickly discarded and re-run from a known good state--as well as putting all dependencies of the operating system and patches into the built artifact
  • Easing developer setup time (up and running immediately without installing various software dependencies and configuring ports/etc.)
  • The ecosystem has many minimal base images for software but this could use more focus on secure base images
  • Many useful Docker commands are not built in as shortcuts to the CLI, but instead need to be managed as other aliases (e.g. `docker rm $(docker ps -a)` to remove all running and stopped containers)
  • It's not always easy for people to optimize the caching layers of docker images--an auditing tool that suggests the order of Dockerfile commands for cache optimization would be handy

Pros and Cons

  • Its topology isolation is in my opinion an unbeatable feature. In our systems we have the need of parallel Java 7 and 8 versions to be running together. Without Docker that would not have been made possible.
  • Docker Swarm, taking care of our load-balance characteristics so needed for our systems is a must have.
  • Docker composer is a very powerful feature, therein I can have my containers scripted and each of its continuous integration and deployment separated with each of its own concerns isolated whilst all being nicely bootstrapped together under the same "docker-compose up" command.
  • Some commands are not very intuitive. In order to have an entire swarm properly functioning [specifically for the scenario we have at our company] wasn't a simple task, having to maintain a very wide range of environment variables safely and nicely kept and good for use. The pipeline to have such a topology ready wasn't simple to figure out how to come up with.
  • Some volumes, if not properly shut down when its necessary, will take up to all your disk space. The extra -v attribute wasn't too obvious to use when removing an specific volume leading us to a huge headache.
  • Some containers, though exposed as official ones at docker.hub.com, are very space and memory consuming. We have do figure out our own containers for pretty much everything, even though the services that were necessary in the containers were pretty vanilla.

Pros and Cons

  • Simple and reliable way to replicate instances.
  • Not needing to worry about internal workings of the instance as Docker takes care of managing the instance.
  • Very well documented API with large community support.
  • Verifiable Docker files, that allow us to look at what exists within a Docker file.
  • Managing backups of Docker instances does not scale well as the size of instance grows. The entire Docker instance needs to be stopped for the backups to happen and it's not always scalable.
  • While there are a lot of useful methods on CLI. The API for CLI is slow to evolve, leaving much to be desired. For example executing commands on the Docker instances, maintaining instances requires hacks using the CLI.
  • Writing a Docker file and debugging it is not always intuitive. Requires some trial and error to get it right.

Pros and Cons

  • Easy to understand, with excellent documentation and community support.
  • Easy to deploy to a variety of platforms.
  • Allows for containers to be quickly be built, destroyed, transferred, all while keeping them consistent.
  • Docker files can be limiting, because of the core idea of Docker, with only one process per container.
  • Debugging DockerFiles can be a nightmare.
  • Some configurations for a container cannot be updated post creation.
  • There can be some trial-and-error associated with deploying containers and their corresponding Docker files.

Pros and Cons

  • Docker is really good to develop applications in an isolated environment
  • Compose different services to make your application infrastructure
  • Docker uses a daemon. This is a single point of failure for an infrastructure that provides many containers. If you need to restart this daemon, you will lose all your containers.

Pros and Cons

  • Containers - Docker is the go-to when using Containers, which are super useful if you need an environment that works both for Windows and Linux
  • Efficiency - Docker is very lightweight and doesn't demand too much from your CPU or server
  • CI/CD - Docker is excellent for plumbing into your build pipeline. It integrates nicely, is reliable, and has an easy set up.
  • Security - Since there's no true operating system, you're pretty limited when it comes to security in Docker. But that's with all containers.
  • Not totally isolated - Docker containers all use the same kernel, so if you've got multiple Docker containers up on one server, you could run into some issues.
  • Network connectivity - There's a fine line between limiting network access but also having proper communication where needed, since you don't have a full OS with Docker

Pros and Cons

  • Creating and deleting "server" images is way easier than normal. You can change configurations and it basically creates a virtual machine on your computer, but WAY easier than using VMWare yourself. It's a layer on top of that.
  • Getting images is pretty easy, there are many on the internet and you can get help from the community in some cases you are not sure what to do
  • The commands in Docker work pretty well. There is good documentation and you can achieve almost anything considering a virtual machine.
  • Maintaining stability between environments thanks to the Docker app. You can have the SAME exact app on different systems (MacOS vs Win) and it will behave 99% the same.
  • As a NON-heavy user, definitely it's a bit intimidating in the onboarding phase. It's hard to understand what everything is for and how to use it appropriately. As I wrote before, this could be because I'm not a hard developer myself.
  • At least on Windows 10, I always have problems turning it on. It has problems starting, I need to quit/start again, and then it works. I'm supposed to have a stable version, not sure if it's only myself.

Pros and Cons

  • Docker provides encapsulation of our deployed software. This allows us to consistently deploy each of our services and webs in a customizable manner.
  • Docker makes it easy to build and release software in both development and production environments
  • Docker allows us to build common baseline environments for consistency across apps while adding app-specific customizations.
  • We have had problems using Docker for local development. There are issues with how it works with our asset build system.
