  1. Rails and Docker in Production at NDrive André Freitas github.com/andrefreitas

    Euruko 2016
  2. We build offline gps navigation apps

  3. We have microservices Made with Ruby on Rails, Golang and

  4. How we build any Rails service? FROM docker.ndrive.com/rails ONBUILD COPY

    Gemfile* /code/ ONBUILD RUN bundle install --without="development test" ONBUILD COPY . /code ONBUILD RUN chown 99:99 -R /code ONBUILD USER 99 ONBUILD ARG version ONBUILD LABEL com.ndrive.version=$version DOCKER_TAG=0.1.0 make docker-build docker-push
  5. How we deploy? ansible-playbook site.yml -i production.ini --limit web1.ndrive.com --tags

    store environment server or group of servers service
  6. - name: container docker: name: auth state: reloaded restart_policy: always

    pull: always net: bridge log_driver: journald image: "docker.ndrive.com/auth:{{ auth.tag }}" ports: - "4001:4001" volumes: - /srv/settings/auth.json:/code/config/settings.json Example of an Ansible Role
  7. Dashboard of Containers (Rancher)

  8. Logs - Rails logs to stdout - Container sends logs

    to Journald journalctl CONTAINER_NAME=auth -f
  9. Pros of Docker - Configuration of servers is simple -

    We build all in a single artifact (Docker image) - Less surprises in deployments - Easy to spin up a test environment (CI) - Friend of microservices
  10. Cons of Docker - We need to know how to

    deal with Docker issues - Low maturity in orchestration (maybe Swarm or Rancher in the future) - Risky for databases
