  7. Development (blog): Docker in Production
    • By now we all know and have worked with Docker a bit. It’s perfect for creating a consistent environment. Running several of them at the same time is easy due to the isolated networking and file system. If you have a set of proper environments (Integration, Staging and Production), then it gets a bit more complicated as one has to integrate Docker with existing services: logging, monitoring, backup as well as deal with deployment and rolling updates.
