Docker containers and multi-site installations


(Kyle Nave) #1

With the new docker container approach is is still recommended to use the mult-site module or just spin up a new docker container for each new site?

Pros and cons of each?

@KyleNave It depends on your risk assessment. If you are worried that somehow someone will exploit a piece of code that allows them to switch to a different site off the same code base and access other customer’s data then you’ll want to use the docker solution.

If you are more worried about the maintenance and code updates involved in managing multiple servers and the risk profile that may create for your team then you’ll want to stick with multisite.

The most secure customer solution will invariably be dependent on the priority you give these two facets of maintenance versus customer isolation.
