In my previous blog, I made some high level network architecture recommendations for your Docker software ecosystem. But the best way to get started with container networking is to play with a real setup! Below, I’ve laid out a couple of the most common approaches to the first step – getting Docker software up and running alongside a Brocade VDX switch fabric. Docker helps configure the container side of networking via libnetwork and Docker Swarm. To build a complete container network solution, you’ll need to integrate your Brocade VDX fabric with Docker networking.
Here are a couple of options for how you can get orchestration and visibility across container networks and physical networks:
