Deploy Container on Ubuntu Pro on Google Cloud

Excerpt below:

Since I wrote Launch Ubuntu Desktop on Google Cloud last week, I kept thinking about putting Ubuntu Desktop into containers. A container is an independent unit of software packages and their dependencies so that the application on the container can run reliably in different computing environments. Docker, an open-source project launched in 2013, made Container technology popular all over the world in just a few years. Why? Let’s compare Containers and Virtual Machines.

The fundamental difference between Virtual Machine and Container is that Containers do not contain a guest Operating System. Containers virtualize the operating system instead of hardware, hence are more portable and efficient. Multiple containers can run on the same machine and share the same OS kernel with other containers. That being said, Containers are much smaller than VMs. You can run 4-6 times as many containers as VMs in the same physical machine.

However, Docker didn’t invent Container, instead, Docker built its technology base on LXC, a method of containerization developed by Canonical in 2008.

In this tutorial, we will create a Docker Container on the latest Ubuntu Pro 20.04 by following 3 steps:

Launch a Ubuntu VM instance on Google Cloud to host Containers.Install Docker.Pull a Docker Image and run the container. Launch a Ubuntu VM to host Containers

In this step, we will launch a VM instance in Google Cloud. The default e2-medium (2 vCPU, 4 GB memory) machine type works fine for the tutorial purpose. If you want
