Now that Sitecore officially supports Docker containers, many of us started considering migrating their Sitecore solutions to Docker setup. But how hard is that and what are the important steps/pain points to consider for production-ready setup?
Starting from version 9.3, Sitecore includes health check HTTP endpoints which you can use to check health of your Sitecore instance. In this post I will show how to add custom health checks.
Inspired by ASP.NET configuration builders I thought: wouldn’t it be awesome to be able to modify Sitecore configuration via environment variables in a similar way? This is especially relevant in Docker world.
Sitecore 9.3 release includes some features which improve containers support, but at the time of writing they are not mentioned neither in release notes nor in documentation. In this post I highlight these features, since I consider them an important step in direction of containers support.
Lately more and more people get interested in running Sitecore in Docker containers. So how do you make Sitecore a good Docker citizen?
