3 Steps to Migrate from Docker Cloud to MilesWeb PaaS before Shutdown

Being a part of IT industry, you might have been shocked about the recent announcement about Docker Cloud being shutdown and the most unexpected news was the time given for migration is approximately a month. The official deadline for migration is 21st May 2018, so there is very less time in order to investigate deeply or proofing concepts for choosing the required solution.

Therefore, many developers as well as companies are completely frustrated right now. So, we at MilesWeb would like to assist you in solving this issue by presenting step-by-step guide on migrating from Docker Cloud to MilesWeb PaaS powered by Jelastic with zero code changes and minimal configurations.

Steps to Migrate from Docker Cloud to MilesWeb PaaS powered by Jelastic

Assemble all the services into one stackfile with the.yml extension with the help of official Docker instruction.

Follow the link below to install Docker Swarm using MilesWeb pre-packaged template (this is a fully automated process):

https://jelastic.com/install-application/?manifest=https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jelastic-jps/docker-native/master/docker-swarm/manifest.jps&keys=app.milesweb.cloud

  • With the link above, you will start with a free trial account for Docker Swarm installation at MilesWeb service provider.
  • Some other providers also provide this cluster in different locations but it is already within full billing accounts. Select the required and register here.

You will need to mention the required details to get the required cluster:

Manager: number of manager nodes to be included into a cluster

Worker: number of worker nodes to be included into a cluster

Deploy Stack YML: select this type of installation to perform docker stack deploy alongside with cluster creation and instantly deploy the required dockerized services by defining the link to the compose YML file created previously

Environment: a name for your environment

Display Name: optional alias to be displayed for an environment

Once you complete with mentioning all the required configurations, Click on Install and wait for few minutes for MilesWeb to perform all required actions automatically.

Note: If you want to automatically install Docker Engine for your projects, follow the instructions here.

Switch the traffic to the newly installed cluster with deployed services. For this you need to ensure your external DNS provider is pointing to your new environment via A Record or CNAME, if your environment doesn’t have a Public IP.

That’s it, your Docker-based project is set up and running at MilesWeb Cloud powered by Jelastic in just three steps.
