Introduction to the Docker example

5 containers and a website

A real life example of a static website built on Docker containers demonstrating architecture and security.

What problem are we trying to solve?

  • Currently: Static website, manual setup and configuration
  • Editor/author wants to use (S)FTP
  • We want security
  • OS Update required
    • Ubuntu 12.04 LTS: So yesterday …
    • Even long term support only goes so far …
  • DR process manual/non-existent
    • Backups only available on editor’s laptop
  • Historical note: this is the 4th or 5th host since the website’s inception in 1999
