Use Docker

Use Docker Container for deployment

The GPlates team has prepared a Docker image for users to deploy the GPlates Web Service on their own servers. Running the GPlates Web Service locally inside a Docker container is especially important in the following scenarios:

  • User's program requires short response time and low latency.
  • User has a large volume of data to process and can provide much more computational power than GPlates server.
  • User has security concerns about sending their data to a remote server.
  • User cannot access service via Internet or the quality of the Internet connection is very poor.

The GPlates Web Service Docker container can be downloaded from Docker Hub

docker pull gplates/gws:latest
