Couchbase Docker Container

Couchbase Docker images are always at hub.docker.com/_/couchbase/. Complete instructions to run Couchbase Docker Container are available at docs.docker.com/engine/examples/couchbase/.

Start Couchbase Docker Container

How do you start a Couchbase Docker container?

docker run -d -p 8091-8093:8091-8093 -p 11210:11210 couchbase

By default, this command starts Couchbase Server 4.1 Enterprise Edition. The latest GA images are always available using this image name.

This server needs to be manually configured by going to the Web Console on http://<DOCKERHOST>:8091. The IP address of the Docker Host in my case is obtained using:

docker-machine ip couchbase

Pre-configured Couchbase Docker Container

If you want a pre-configured server, then you can run the image:

docker run -d -p 8091-8093:8091-8093 -p 11210:11210 arungupta/couchbase

This image is created using Dockerfile and configures the following:

  • Configures the memory
  • Configures Index, Query, and Data service
  • Sets up username/password credentials

Couchbase 4.5 Docker Container

Couchbase 4.5 Developer Preview was launched recently. It can run as a Docker container as:

docker run -d -p 8091-8093:8091-8093 -p 11210:11210 couchbase/server:enterprise-4.5.0-DP1

b4ea7e969278b94fd9748003f7305e5ffcc30b398c6c6301982895550fd7fd24

Notice the image name is couchbase/server:enterprise-4.5.0-DP1.

The Couchbase Web Console is then accessible at http://<DOCKERHOST>:8091. The IP address of the Docker Host in my case is obtained using:

docker-machine ip couchbase

And so the Web Console looks like:

couchbase-4.5-developer-preview-docker-setup

After configuring the services, the Console looks like:

couchbase-4.5dp1-console-docker-1024x607

Pre-configured Couchbase 4.5 Docker Container

Now, if you want a pre-configured server, try this:

docker run -d -p 8091-8093:8091-8093 -p 11210:11210 arungupta/couchbase-server

This image is created using Dockerfile and configures the following:

  • Configures the memory
  • Configures Index, Query, Data, and Full-text service
  • Sets up username/password credentials

So, here are the images you need to use:

ImagePurpose
couchbase Last GA version of Couchbase
couchbase/server Intermediate builds of Couchbase, such as Developer Preview, Beta, etc
arungupta/couchbase Last GA version of Couchbase, pre-configured
arungupta/couchbase-server Intermediate builds of Couchbase, pre-configured

 
Easy, eh?
