Docker Compose – Introduction

Docker Compose is basically a docker tool to define and run multi-container Docker applications. Each of these containers run in isolation but can interact with each other when required. With Compose, you use a docker-compose.yaml file to configure your application’s services. Then, with a single command, you create and start all the services from your configuration. It’s an excellent tool for development, testing, CI workflows, and staging environments.

Benefits

Some of the benefits provided by  Docker Compose are:

  • Multiple isolated environments on a single host
  • Quick and easy configuration due to YAML scripts
  • Scale up selected services when required
  • Orchestrate multiple containers that work together
