Amazon EC2 cluster


You can deploy a go-docker cluster in Amazon EC2 with this contextualization code.

Scripts have been tested in Debian 8, with cloud-init. For other systems, scripts should be adapted.

Default configuration is in /opt/go-docker/docker-files/prod/go-d.ini and production.ini

It is based on Docker swarm, and uses local authentication. You can use the godocker user to login (password: godocker). Scripts create a local godocker user and its home in a directory shared with nodes (uid, gid: 1005). You can change his id or password in the scripts.

This configuration is for testing/demo purpose only, not production.

To use a different configuration, simply clone go-docker repository and update go-d.ini.sample file to fit your config. Then, update the script at the following lines to match your own repository/config file:

# Specify your cloned/updated repo
git clone
cp /opt/go-docker/docker-files/prod/go-d.ini.sample /opt/go-docker/docker-files/prod/go-d.ini


Install master using contextualization from script

You should open port 6543 on the virtual machine to access the web server.

When ready, connect to the VM and look at file content /var/log/godocker.log. It contains the master local ip address and cluster id. Note those for node installation.


At least one node is needed, the master does not manage computation tasks.

Install slave using contextualization. Replace in the script the master ip and cluster id values, using script

Nodes declare themselves to Docker Swarm on master. You can dynamically add or remove nodes in the cluster.
