Docker swarm single node

Hi all,

Im very new to the docker community and started learning about docker and docker swarm to deploy applications on digital ocean. For now, it seems like an incredible tool to use.

I was thinking about deploying a nextjs/strapi application using docker swarm in single mode but a multitude of articles speak of a decreasing support of docker swarm.

My question basically is: what is the best way to deploy an application to a single server in a containerized way without missing out on all the features an orchestrator would bring?

Kind regards

Docker Engine 1.12 introduces swarm mode that enables you to create a cluster of one or more Docker Engines called a swarm. A swarm consists of one or more nodes: physical or virtual machines running Docker Engine 1.12 or later in swarm mode. There are two types of nodes: managers and workers.

Thx you for the quick reply. I am aware of swarm mode as I stated in my question, but is docker swarm a safe bet considering support for it is apparently going down

Kind regards
