Distributing and updating containers on customers systems


(Erik Günther) #1

Hi all smart people,

We are planning to run a container with a service on the end customers on-prem machines. This service connect to one of the customer on-prem services and connect to our cloud service. The thing is that we would like to be able to update the service on the customers machine when needed, due to firewalls and stuff I recon that a pull-mechanism works best.

So I have seen this (push), docker cloud is kind of doing this but I can’t find documentation to set this up. Preferred way would be that we can distribute a docker-compose.yml file that will do all the magic, including a container updating the service itself if there are an update available. Anyone have a pointer?
