In the first part, we present an example microservice structure, with multiple services, a foreign API interface and a reverse proxy that also allows load balancing.
To benefit from using a loadbalancer we need several machines to distribute the traffic on, evidently. Thanks to Docker we simply run docker run -d -p 81:80 testwebsite:1 to get a second machine. This time the container port of the webserver is mapped to port 81. If you now visit <IP OF YOUR VM>:81 you […]
This is Part 2 of a series of posts. You can find Part 1 here: https://blog.mi.hdm-stuttgart.de/index.php/2016/01/03/more-docker-more-power-part-1-setting-up-virtualbox/ In the first part of this series we have set up two VirtualBox machines. One functions as the load balancer and the other will house our services. As the next step we want to install docker on the service VM. […]
This series of blogposts will focus on the effects on response times when performing different tasks running on a variable number of docker containers in a virtual machine. What will be the performance differences running a small or large number of containers on the same machine? These posts will function as a step-by-step tutorial, enabling […]
