Chapter Summary

This lesson is a summary of the concepts learned in this chapter.

Docker Swarm is Docker’s native technology for managing clusters of Docker nodes and deploying and managing cloud-native applications. It is similar to Kubernetes.

At its core, Swarm has a secure clustering component and an orchestration component.

The secure clustering component is enterprise-grade and offers a wealth of security and HA features that are automatically configured and extremely simple to modify.

The orchestration component allows you to deploy and manage cloud-native microservices applications in a simple declarative manner.

We’ll dig deeper into deploying cloud-native microservices apps in a declarative manner in Deploying Application with Docker Stacks.
