So what will we be doing today? We are going to leverage the power of the combination between docker containers & the rancher eco system. As a demonstration, we’ll be publishing “Owncloud” with a “mysql” backend. As we tend to like it a bit more secure, we’ll introduce a loadbalancer service as SSL termination. This as we want to keep our “Owncloud” as “vanilla” as possible. We’ll be pointing that service towards the outside world and will make it accessible via the “external dns”.
What can we optimize further about the design? (but is out-of-scope for today)
- Add sidekick containers for backup purposes
- Add data volume containers
- Introduce scalable worker containers (“Owncloud”)
- Introduce convoy for our data containers
