After some considerable difficulties getting the individual components of CartoDB to run in individual, separated Docker containers, Iván and Oriol have now found a way to make this work and Oriol is proceeding with this work "dockerising" the distinct components of the CartoDB platform into manageable units.
He hopes to publish a Git repo of the work so far shortly.
Paul is now working on orchestrating and provisioning these new docker containers. Right now, we expect that this will be done using the tool Ansible which is mature, has a large community and is known to work well with Docker.
An additional bonus of Ansible is that its configuration files are written in the same configuration language (YAML) as Docker Compose files - a Docker-backed orchestration tool we hope to use when it becomes more mature and production ready.
Paul's work will start to appear in the existing Akvo Provisioning Repo on GitHub.
Many thanks to Iván for his extremely valuable input in this process.
