Docker Containers with ECP

Hello!

I'm interested to hear if folks have experience using Docker containers with Caché instances using ECP. Wondering if there are any special considerations when setting up a distributed application with multiple containers communicating with ECP. Any input is appreciated!

I made such an example years ago, you can look at GitHub. This example maybe not so correct by this time, but can be useful. When you have to run only ECP clients, it becomes a bit easier. You should not care about volumes, in most cases, all the data stored in ECP-client is temporal. So, you mostly should care only about buffers. In my example, you can find how to configure instance during docker build to work as ECP-client.

Thanks for the reference! I'll take a look at this. 

I'm assuming that you would also need a companion container defined for your database server(s) where you would deal with persisting data.

ICM can do it.

Use DM and AM instances.

Maybe @Luca Ravazzolo would add more info.

Thanks for the suggestion. We're currently running HealthShare instances on top of Ensemble. We've been told by ISC that there isn't a HealthShare version of IRIS available yet, so we don't plan on migrating to the new platform anytime soon.
