Create a Docker 1.12+ Swarm using docker-machine
In case you missed it, DockerCon 2016 was amazing! There were several great features announced, with most of it stemming from orchestration is now built-in. You get automatic load balancing (the routing mesh is crazy cool!), easy roll-outs (with healthcheck support), and government-level security by default (which is crazy hard to do by yourself).
In case you’re a little confused on how to spin up a mini-cluster, this post will show you how. It’s pretty easy to do!
