Docker charm

This subordinate charm deploys the Docker engine within a running Juju charm application. Docker is an open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications in containers.

Docker containers wrap a piece of software in a complete file system that contains everything needed to run an application on a server.

Docker focuses on distributing applications as containers that can be quickly assembled from components that are run the same on different servers without environmental dependencies. This eliminates the friction between development, QA, and production environments.

States

The following states are set by this subordinate:

  • endpoint.{relation name}.available

    This state is set when docker is available for use.

Using the Docker subordinate charm

The Docker subordinate charm is to be used with principal charms that need a container runtime. To use, we deploy the Docker subordinate charm and then relate it to the principal charm.

juju deploy cs:~containers/docker
juju add-relation docker [principal charm]

Scale out Usage

This charm will automatically scale out with the principal charm.
