I am looking into replacing my company’s Vagrant virtual machine set up with a container-based infrastructure.
I’ve managed to get single projects set up on Docker Compose using some standard, minimally customised PHP + NGINX images which work great however, as a lot of our applications are microservices, I am struggling to get multiple applications talking to each other.
Ideally booting one application with dependencies on other applications would boot the other needed applications too.
I have done a bit of searching around the topic and am a bit stuck. Is Docker Compose even the right tool for this?
If someone could point me in the right direction I would be eternally grateful. If I can explain better please let me know!
Thanks in advance.
