Description

Need a platform that lets you reliably collaborate with your team through all your project's phases and iterations? Looking to take advantage of the power of lightweight, cloud-ready containers for your production deployment? Consider Docker. No matter what your experience level, Using Docker on Amazon Web Service (AWS) will get you up and running with Docker containers, dockerfiles, image repositories (through both Docker Hub and AWS's EC2 Container Repository), and managing containers through the EC2 Container Service (ECS). In this course, Using Docker on AWS, you'll first explore Docker on AWS at a high level, learning how the parts work together by assembling all the basic pieces of a Docker infrastructure on an EC2-based Linux instance, including installation, simple Dockerfiles and Docker Hub images. Next, you'll learn about building a cluster environment, including how all the moving parts can be brought together in a real, publicly accessible deployment. Finally, you'll wrap up the course by learning how to work with Docker images and registries. By the end of this course, you'll have learned foundational knowledge of both the theory and practice of using using Docker on AWS.
