Which objects does Docker Cloud create in my EC2 account?


Which objects does Docker Cloud create in my EC2 account?


If you decide to let Docker Cloud create elements for you, it will create:

  • A VPC with the tag name dc-vpc and CIDR range
  • A set of subnets if there are no subnets already created in the VPC. Docker Cloud creates a subnet in every Availability Zone (AZ) possible, and leaves enough CIDR space for the user to create customized subnets. Every subnet created is tagged withdc-subnet.
  • An internet gateway named dc-gateway attached to the VPC.
  • A route table name dc-route-table in the VPC, associating the subnet with the gateway.
