Working Sample to try out Docker Swarm on Windows 10

Please try out the excellent article Fun with Docker Swarm and Excellent working example on Swarm. Using the knowledge gained from these articles, I was able to get my swarm up and running on my windows 10 box using VirtualBox.

Note: Please make sure that the Docker Toolbox installation and virtual box are properly installed on windows. I have used the windows 10 and it worked well.

If anyone needs help, please let me know by sending me an email at

Warm Regards,

Let’s investigate Docker Swarm in the next few posts.
