A complete noobie to Docker and the whole concept of containers here.
I’m on a quest to learn more, but wanted to pose some questions first to see whether Docker is suitable for my needs.
I want to create a trial version of my product (a webapp) so that prospects can come along to the website and click “live demo” and then be taken to their own instance of the trial, so as not to interfere with anyone else’s environment.
My team have suggested launching VM instances from an image in AWS, but while this would work, it seems like overkill to me. Would Docker fit this purpose better?
Can I create instances (albeit application rather than hardware) instances of our image?
And will they all have their own unique URL?
I wonder if anyone else has used Docker for the purposes of a product demo/trial?
Thanks and I apologise for the noobie questions! I am spending the whole day installing and learning about Docker, so I may answer my questions over the course of the next few hours, but I couldn’t find any specific examples of anyone using Docker for my exact use case.
