Running Docker Containers on AWS

Running containers locally has been made very easy by Docker with tools like Docker for Mac or Windows. With Docker Swarm a group of Docker engines can be turned into a virtual Docker Engine providing native clustering capabilities.

But how do you setup Docker Swarm cluster on AWS? What is necessary to deploy your application to the swarm?

In this workshop, Philipp guides you step-by-step through the process of setting up Docker Swarm from scratch. He also shows how to deploy and update applications based on Docker Compose v3. Principals like immutable infrastructure and configuration as code will influence the entire process as CloudFormation plays an important role.


  1. Basic Setup

    • Local Requirements
    • Immutable Infrastructure with CloudFormation
    • Basic VPC Setup
  2. Docker 

    • Run Docker on EC2 (VMs)
    • Scale with AutoScaling Groups
  3. Docker Swarm
