Back in October 2016, Docker released Infrakit, an open source toolkit for creating and managing declarative, self-healing infrastructure. This is the second in a two part series that dives more deeply into the internals of InfraKit. Introduction In the first installment of this two part series about the internals of InfraKit, we presented InfraKit’s design, architecture, and approach to high availability.  We also discussed how it can be combined with other systems to give distributed computing clusters self-healing and self-managing properties. In this installment, we present an example of leveraging Docker Engine in Swarm Mode to achieve high availability for InfraKit,…

Back in October, Docker released Infrakit, an open source toolkit for creating and managing declarative, self-healing infrastructure. This is the first in a two part series that dives more deeply into the internals of InfraKit. Introduction At Docker,  our mission to build tools of mass innovation constantly challenges to look at ways to improve the way developers and operators work. Docker Engine with integrated orchestration via Swarm mode have greatly simplified and improved efficiency in application deployment and management of microservices. Going a level deeper, we asked ourselves if we could improve the lives of operators by making tools to…
