Docker lets you build, test, and deploy applications quickly

Docker is a software platform that allows you to build, test, and deploy applications quickly. Docker packages software into standardized units called containers that have everything the software needs to run including libraries, system tools, code, and runtime. Using Docker, you can quickly deploy and scale applications into any environment and know your code will run.

Running Docker on AWS provides developers and admins a highly reliable, low-cost way to build, ship, and run distributed applications at any scale.

Recent announcements: Docker collaborates with AWS to help developers speed delivery of modern apps to the cloud. This collaboration helps developers use Docker Compose and Docker Desktop to leverage the same local workflow they use today to seamlessly deploy apps on Amazon ECS and AWS Fargate. Read the blog for more information.

Amazon Cloud Drive was recently released, making accessing your photos from anywhere as easy as viewing them on your phone. After adjusting a few settings you’ll be able to snap a photo from your phone, get on your computer and view them in your pictures folder. Open your Amazon account and you can view them there as well. Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a web-based service that allows businesses to run application programs in the Amazon Web Services public cloud.Amazon EC2 allows a developer to spin up virtual machines , which provide compute capacity for IT projects and cloud workloads that run with global AWS data centers. Securely store, print, and share your favorite photos from the Amazon Photos app. Keep your memories close at hand on devices like Fire TV, Echo Show, and Amazon Fire tablets. Backup your photos to the cloud. Once you save your pics to Amazon Photos you can safely delete them from your device to free up space. Looking for special gifts? Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) provides scalable computing capacity in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. Using Amazon EC2 eliminates your need to invest in hardware up front, so you can develop and deploy applications faster.

Amazon S3 offers cloud storage for video and photos, allowing clients to store billions of media objects and retrieve them from anywhere on the web.

How Docker works

Cloud

Amazon Cloud Pricing

Docker works by providing a standard way to run your code. Docker is an operating system for containers. Similar to how a virtual machine virtualizes (removes the need to directly manage) server hardware, containers virtualize the operating system of a server. Docker is installed on each server and provides simple commands you can use to build, start, or stop containers.

Amazon

AWS services such as AWS Fargate, Amazon ECS, Amazon EKS, and AWS Batch make it easy to run and manage Docker containers at scale.

Why use Docker

Using Docker lets you ship code faster, standardize application operations, seamlessly move code, and save money by improving resource utilization. With Docker, you get a single object that can reliably run anywhere. Docker's simple and straightforward syntax gives you full control. Wide adoption means there's a robust ecosystem of tools and off-the-shelf applications that are ready to use with Docker.

Ship More Software Faster

Docker users on average ship software 7x more frequently than non-Docker users. Docker enables you to ship isolated services as often as needed.

Standardize Operations

Small containerized applications make it easy to deploy, identify issues, and roll back for remediation.

Seamlessly Move

Docker-based applications can be seamlessly moved from local development machines to production deployments on AWS.

Save Money

Docker containers make it easier to run more code on each server, improving your utilization and saving you money.

When to use Docker

You can use Docker containers as a core building block creating modern applications and platforms. Docker makes it easy to build and run distributed microservices architecures, deploy your code with standardized continuous integration and delivery pipelines, build highly-scalable data processing systems, and create fully-managed platforms for your developers. The recent collaboration between AWS and Docker makes it easier for you to deploy Docker Compose artifacts to Amazon ECS and AWS Fargate.

Microservices

Build and scale distributed application architectures by taking advantage of standardized code deployments using Docker containers.

Continuous Integration & Delivery

Accelerate application delivery by standardizing environments and removing conflicts between language stacks and versions.

Data Processing

Provide big data processing as a service. Package data and analytics packages into portable containers that can be executed by non-technical users.

Containers as a Service

Build and ship distributed applications with content and infrastructure that is IT-managed and secured.

Docker frequently asked questions

Q: What can I do with Docker?

Using Docker, you can quickly deploy and scale applications into any environment and know your code will run. You can do this because Docker packages software into standardized units called containers that have everything the software needs to run including libraries, system tools, code, and runtime.

Q: What is a Docker Image?

A Docker image is a read-only template that defines your container. The image contains the code that will run including any definitions for any libraries and dependancies your code needs. A Docker container is an instantiated (running) Docker image. AWS provides Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR), an image registry for storing and quickly retrieving Docker images.

Q: What is the difference between Docker and a virtual machine?

Virtual machines (VMs) virtualize (or remove the need to directly manage) server hardware while containers virtualize the operating system of a server. Docker is an operating system (or runtime) for containers. The Docker Engine is installed on each server you want to run containers on and provides a simple set of commands you can use to build, start, or stop containers.

Did you know Amazon Prime membership includes UNLIMITED photo storage? It was that claim which led me to investigate Amazon’s backup services a few years ago and it turns out… the backup service is pretty amazing.

Amazon Cloud Backup Features

Find Photos On Amazon Cloud

For Prime Members, unlimited photo storage is free and it will only cost $12 to include videos too (up to 100 GB). Prices are reasonable for non-Prime members too (a 1TB plan costs $60 a year).

But my love for Amazon Photos extends well beyond the affordable price tag. Here are some other features I love:

Amazon Cloud Services

  • Your files are saved at full size. RAW files too!
  • Auto-Sync Functionality. Using the Amazon Photos desktop app, you can designate a folder for Amazon to watch- any time you add files into this folder, it automatically adds them to the cloud. Plus, the Amazon Photos phone app will auto-sync all your phone photos + videos to the cloud as well.
  • Folder View and Photos View. I keep my photos organized in folders by month/year on my computer and I really prefer that format. Amazon Prime Photos gives you an option to view your files in two ways- a FOLDER VIEW and a PHOTOS VIEW. The FOLDER VIEW can be seen using the Amazon Drive app or by going to amazonclouddrive.com. The PHOTOS VIEW can be seen in the Amazon Photos app or by clicking on ‘Amazon Photos’ from amazonclouddrive.com. In Photos view you can search your files by face, place, date, or keyword.
  • Searching by keyword, location, or person. You can type in a keyword and it’ll search the VISUAL COMPONENTS of your photos- it’s pretty amazing. The example below shows the search ‘birthday’ returned lots of images- my son’s first birthday cake smash, my 30th birthday party with family, etc. None of these photos have the term ‘birthday’ in the filename or metadata. IT JUST KNOWS.

Amazon Cloud Pictures

You can also search by place or by person (automatic facial recognition):

HOW TO SETUP AMAZON PHOTOS BACKUP

  • Download the Amazon Photos app to your phone. Enable Auto-Sync for both photos and videos.
  • Download the Amazon Photos program to your desktop computer. Enable the Backup function for the folder(s) containing photos on your computer.- You may need to un-check the defaults and click ‘Choose a Folder…” to locate your folder.
    – I recommend changing the ‘Backup Destination’ to be the Parent Amazon folder (see settings below). It will be easier to find what you need.
  • Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having your photos backed up to the cloud + accessible on any device!

Amazon Photos Desktop App

There are three functions within the Amazon Photos desktop app.

  • Backup designates a certain folder for Amazon to watch and sync additions to the cloud automatically. You can also initiate a one-time backup on this screen.
  • Restore initiates a one-time download from the cloud to your computer.
  • Sync sets up an automatic and ongoing download from the cloud (for example: syncing your Pictures/iPhone folder will download all the auto-sync files from your phone right onto your computer).

Note: The Amazon Photos desktop program is only for uploading/downloading files, not for viewing. To view your files in the cloud go to amazonclouddrive.com or download the Amazon Drive app and the Amazon Photos app to your phone.
