DNS-based dynamic service discovery is still an unsolved problem for Docker Swarm. In this talk we will talk about a new open source project by Microsoft: “wagl” a minimalist DNS service discovery solution built specifically Docker Swarm Clusters. It takes a single command to set up and works out of the box.
wagl is open source at: github.com/ahmetalpbalkan/wagl
wagl allows developers to use domain names such as api.billing.swarm or memcached.swarm:11211 in their applications that are magically resolved into IP addresses of containers spread all over the Swarm cluster.
The session will also review other means of Service Discovery, use cases of Swarm and there will be a demo of creating Docker Swarm Clusters in Azure in just a few clicks.
