Re: Is Alfresco 6.x on Docker production ready?

Hi,

since the quesiton of the original post was'nt claryfied by the answers of this thread, I ask it again: Is the use of docker-compose to operate Alfresco in a production environment recomended? Yes or No? If no, why?

Regarding the official Alfresco documentation, it is a clear No. But the reason ist not very detailied ("Due to the limited capabilities of Docker Compose,..."). See link below.

https://docs.alfresco.com/6.2/tasks/deploy-docker-compose.html 

I operate three Alfresco server which I installed with the docker-compose script provided by https://github.com/aborroy  Works flawlessly.

Gitub-URL: https://github.com/Alfresco/alfresco-docker-installer 

In my opionion this is a great installer (like the old days when we had a proper installer script to install Alfresco), So, question is, is this docker installer also ment to be used only for test/dev purposes?

Would be nice, if someone from Alresco could be clarify this question. Thank you.

Best regards, Matthias

Docker Compose deploymen can be used for prod environments when using Community version. But I guess the usage with Enterprise is discouraged.

Hi Angel,

Thank you very much to clarify this question. Btw, your script helped me a lot to install containerized Alfresco community 6.2 as well as get a baisc understanding how docker and docker-compose works.

All the best, Matthias
