About the Swarm category

Docker Swarm is native clustering for Docker. It allows you create and access to a pool of Docker hosts using the full suite of Docker tools. Because Docker Swarm serves the standard Docker API, any tool that already communicates with a Docker daemon can use Swarm to transparently scale to multiple hosts.

Note: Swarm is currently in BETA, so things are likely to change. We don’t recommend you use it in production yet.

The following should work with Swarm:

  • Dokku
  • Docker Compose
  • Krane
  • Jenkins
