CoverTitleYear
KEY FEATURES * Set up, configure, and monitor a virtual network of containers using a bridge network and virtual switches * Master the skill of networking Docker Containers using frameworks such as Kubernetes, Docker Swarm, and Mesosphere * Acquire hands-on experience through practical examples of more » Docker networking spanning multiple containers, over multiple hosts, clubbed with various frameworks BOOK DESCRIPTION Docker is a Linux container implementation that enables the creation of light weight portable development and production environments. These environments can be updated incrementally. Docker achieves this by leveraging containment principles like cgroups and Linux namespaces along with Overlay filesystem based portable images. Docker provides the networking primitives that allow administrators to specify how different containers network with each application and connect each of its components, then distribute them across a large number of servers and ensure coordination between them irrespective of the host or VM they are running in. This book will show you how to create, deploy, and manage a virtual network for connecting containers spanning single or multiple hosts. WHAT YOU WILL LEARN * Get to know the basics of networking and see how Docker networking works * Expose the strengths and weaknesses of the current Docker network implementation and third party landscape * Understand Docker networking spanning multiple containers over multiple hosts through practical examples * Observe the pitfalls of Docker networking and how to overcome them * Learn how Docker networking works for Docker Swarm and Kubernetes * Configure Networking using Docker's container network model (CNM) * Explore OpenvSwitch to connect contain ABOUT THE AUTHOR Rajdeep Dua has over 16 years of experience in distributed systems.

Bio-Inspired Quality of Service Aware Routing Protocols
In recent years, a lot of work has been done in an effort to incorporate Swarm Intelligence (SI) techniques in building an adaptive routing protocol for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs). Since centralized approach for routing in MANETs generally lacks in scalability and fault-tolerance, SI techniques more » provide a natural solution through a distributed approach for the adaptive routing for MANETs. In SI techniques, the captivating features of insects or mammals are correlated with the real world problems to find solutions. Recently, several applications of bio-inspired and nature-inspired algorithms in telecommunications and computer networks have achieved remarkable success. The main aims/objectives of this book, "Mobile Ad Hoc Networks: Bio-Inspired Quality of Service Aware Routing Protocols", are twofold; firstly it clearly distinguishes between principles of traditional routing protocols and SI based routing protocols, while explaining in detail the analogy between MANETs and SI principles. Secondly, it presents the readers with important Quality of Service (QoS) parameters and explains how SI based routing protocols achieves QoS demands of the applications. This book also gives quantitative and qualitative analysis of some of the SI based routing protocols for MANETs. « less
