Docker is a well-known containerization tool. It helps to run 100s of containers in multiple clusters. Managing these huge number of containers can be a painful task for your team. By using docker hosting platforms, managing containers becomes easy. Also, it helps your team focus on their core activities while leaving the headache of docker management to experts. Below, I have mentioned the famous docker hosting platforms for managing your docker containers.
Google Cloud Run
Kubernetes, the famous container orchestration tool, was developed by Google. So, hosting docker on GCP is most suitable. Cloud Run in GCP is a computing platform, a serverless platform that can host Docker containers and run them. Cloud Run automates provisioning of servers, scaling of servers to meet demands. One needs to mention to Cloud Run where their Container is and press ‘Create’. Cloud Run deploys your Container in a serverless environment in seconds. It allows continuous deployment with the help of Cloud Code and Cloud Build and can use your desired operating system and programming language to deploy containers.
It is a container service providing docker hosting and running support. Used primarily for containerizing applications on AWS, it uses AWS Fargate for provisioning of servers, management of clusters. It uses Amazon ECS for creating connections between containers. It containerizes applications on both monolithic and microservice architecture. For load-balancing, Amazon ECS uses AWS ELB.
Azure provides its platform support for hosting docker containers. The containers can be orchestrated across 29 regions in the cloud. It uses Azure Kubernetes service for easy deployment of containerized applications. Azure App Service helps in the deployment of window containers on the Azure platform. Azure Monitor monitors the containers’ performance. It employs enterprise-grade security for running apps in docker containers.
