Tutorial: Running MongoDB and MEAN Apps in Docker and Kubernetes

June 23, 2017

Speaker: Vadim Polyakov, Vice President Cloud Engineering, TechSmith Corp. 
Level: 200 (Intermediate)
Track: Tutorials

Using a simple MEAN app (MongoDB, Express, Angular and Node) we'll dockerize this application and spin up the entire infrastructure in Kubernetes on AWS. We’ll start with a successful build, dockerize it into a container, and then we will combine this container with official containers available on DockerHub to deploy a MongoDB replica set, nginx proxy, and scaled web API tier to run the entire application.

Engineers will get hands-on experience with deploying Docker and Kubernetes. No prior experience is required


  • 1. Install the following:
  •       - VirtualBox: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/VirtualBox
  •       - Vagrant: https://www.vagrantup.com/ 
  •       - Git: https://git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Getting-Started-Installing-Git 
  • 2. Clone the repo: https://github.com/polyakov/kubist.
  • 3. Download the image and get it running in VirtualBox by following these instructions: https://github.com/polyakov/kubist/blob/master/01-docker/01b-setup-prebuilt-image.md.4. 
  • 4. To run the clients in AWS, attendees will need an account in AWS to be able to launch an prepared image/AMI.

What You Will Learn:

Tools and architectural trade-offs for running MongoDB in various configuration using Docker and Kubernetes.

Deploy and manage an entire application in in Docker and Kubernetes.

Deeper understanding of containers, Docker and Kubernetes APIs, and architectural concerns for this type of deployment.
