Docker Data Management with Flocker
Plenty of today's modern applications are built from both stateless and stateful microservices. Flocker makes it simple for entire applications, including their state, to be containerized to take full advantage of the portability and massive per-server density benefits we see in containers.
This book provides a complete understanding on how and why you should use Flocker as a storage backend for Docker containers, irrespective of the chosen hosting environment and configuration. We start off by teaching you how Flocker differs from the default Docker volume drivers; how to install it; and its supporting tools. We will also go through the drivers for dedicated storage devices and show you how to use Flocker on the public cloud (AWS, Google Cloud, and OpenStack). Next we look at using Flocker with Docker Swarm, integrating it with Kubernetes and getting up-and-running with Mesos.
This book will come with plenty of working examples to show you how Flocker can be implemented in several real-world scenarios.
