Ansible & Docker example Presentation In this "experimental" example, I'm creating several centos:7 images using Docker. All images include SSH Server (so to provision them easily with Ansible) Each image is targeted to specific usage, including: Load-balancer Reverse proxy Web server Middle-tier and application server Database Monitoring server (will also include tools such elastic stuck, for production like usage) Targeted technologies Ansible Docker Also covered technologies : Nginx Wildfly 10 (with Oracle JDK 8) Postgresql Shinken Elastic Stack Methods Principles Limit root and previligied users actions as much as possible Create and target users with specific usage to specific machines and apps. Limit users permissions to targeted machines and apps. Separate concerns. Those actions need to be done separatly: Hosting machine (OS) creation, Hosting machine configuration, Midlleware binary install, Middleware instance creations, Middleware instance configuration and Application deployment Idempotence. The result of an action does not change if we run multiple times under the same conditions. Every actions must be verifiable. Verify success/failure/skip completion of each action. Unless it's the first action, any action must have knwoledge of previous action completion status (success/failure/skip) and perform according to it. Actions with no dependecies on others, can and should be run alone without need to run the whole action list. Steps Direct application of method and principles on a specific need (requirement) leads to those steps: Create or use existing host Configure the host Install pre-requisite modules (sshd, filewalld ..) Open ports Create users Install middleware packages Create middleware instances Configure middleware instances Start instances Deploy applications
