Cloud computing and docker make web application deployment easy

1. Create a simple Node.js Express web application

const express = require("express")
const app = express()
const index = function (req, res) {
const date = new Date()
app.get("/", index)
const port = 3000
app.listen(port, () => console.log(`app listening at ${port}`))
FROM node:alpineWORKDIR /usr/src/appCOPY . /usr/src/appRUN npm installEXPOSE 3000CMD ["node", "index.js"]
Files in the folder
Files in the folder
docker build -t sample-web .

2. Push the image to GCP(Google Cloud Platform)

// make sure we login first
gcloud auth login
// make sure Google Cloud SDK can access the local docker images
gcloud auth configure-docker
// make tag to the docker images we just built
docker tag sample-web [HOSTNAME]/[GCP PROJECT ID]/[IMAGE]
// push the tagged image to google Container Registry

3. Deployment in GCP using “Instance Group” and “Load Balancer”

click the Container checkbox
