How to get Docker images to take off, so simple to set up

I. Introduction

Docker is great to use, especially when it comes to DevOps practices. However, when you pull mirrors in China or locally, you often encounter various "constipation" - either the mirror pull is slow, or the connection is intermittent, or the connection times out!

When our images are large (like someone dropped a Warcraft package in the code), it's a nightmare! So how to solve this problem? Next, we mainly solve this problem from the following aspects:

  • Using Mirror Accelerator
  • change source
  • Make the mirror yourself and push it to the domestic warehouse
  • Build your own mirror warehouse near you
  • Last Trick (Secret)

2. Mirror Accelerator

Accelerators can be used for playing online game cards, and mirror pulls generally have related accelerators. Domestic cloud manufacturers basically provide image accelerators:

How to use Mirror Accelerator?

Docker Hub Image Accelerator Configuration

Linux systems can execute the following shells:

After configuration, you can use the "docker info" command to check whether it takes effect:

What about Windows 10? It can be configured on the interface as shown below:

Windows 10 configuration

3. Change the source

The accelerator is very cool to use, but in many cases, some images are not easy to use even if the accelerator is configured (may be related to the international bandwidth of the accelerator). At this time, the source must be changed. After all, the accelerator is not a panacea, especially when your mirror is relatively large. Then you have to find the right source.

For example, for the SDK image of .NET Core, we can use the image source of Azure China uniformly. As shown in the following table, we see that the domestic corresponding agent of "" is "":

Therefore, we can use "" instead of the official "" source:


# docker pull
docker pull

As shown in the above code, we replace the source of Azure International with the source of Azure China, and the speed of pulling packages will be very fast. The source has been changed, which means that we also need to modify the Dockerfile command:


#FROM AS build
#Modified to Azure China mirror
FROM AS build

4. Make the mirror yourself and push it to the domestic warehouse

The active person also said, what if there is no source? It can't be cold, can it? Then do it yourself. It can be built overseas based on GitHub hosting, Azure DevOps and Docker hub, and then push the image to the domestic image warehouse.

Then, just replace the source with your own in the Dockerfile and enjoy a quick takeoff:


#For instructions, see:
FROM AS base

Here is a tip: using apt package under Linux is often very slow and unreliable, and sometimes it is not reliable to replace it with a domestic agent. At this time, you can consider using overseas builds to make mirrors.

5. Build the nearest mirror warehouse by yourself

The server bandwidth is not enough, and the local network is not good, what should I do? What else can you do, build your own warehouse. It is recommended to use nexus here. nexus can host various packages, including Docker, Nuget, Jar, npm, Bower, etc., so don't be too sharp. How to build? Yaml is often tested as follows:


apiVersion: apps/v1beta2
kind: Deployment
    k8s-app: nexus
  name: nexus
  namespace: default
  progressDeadlineSeconds: 600
  replicas: 1
  revisionHistoryLimit: 10
      k8s-app: nexus
    type: Recreate
        k8s-app: nexus
      - image: sonatype/nexus3
        imagePullPolicy: IfNotPresent
        name: nexus
            cpu: "2"
            memory: 5024Mi
            cpu: 10m
            memory: 256Mi
        - mountPath: /nexus-data
          name: data
      restartPolicy: Always
      nodeName: k8s-node1 #Enforce constraints to schedule Pod s to specified Node nodes
      terminationGracePeriodSeconds: 30 #The time to wait when the Pod ends (in seconds)
        - name: data
          hostPath:   #Use host directory
            path: /var/nexus
      hostNetwork: true
apiVersion: v1
kind: Service
  name: nexus
  namespace: default
  - name: tcp-8081-8081
    nodePort: 30081
    port: 8081
    protocol: TCP
    targetPort: 8081
  - name: tcp-8082-8082
    nodePort: 30082
    port: 8082
    protocol: TCP
    targetPort: 8082
  - name: tcp-8083-8083
    nodePort: 30083
    port: 8083
    protocol: TCP
    targetPort: 8083
  - name: tcp-8084-8084
    nodePort: 30084
    port: 8084
    protocol: TCP
    targetPort: 8084
  - name: tcp-8085-8085
    nodePort: 30085
    port: 8085
    protocol: TCP
    targetPort: 8085
  - name: tcp-8086-8086
    nodePort: 30086
    port: 8086
    protocol: TCP
    targetPort: 8086
    k8s-app: nexus
  sessionAffinity: None
  type: NodePort

Six, the last trick

If it doesn't work, copy it with a U disk. Don't say know me. Don't you believe it can be copied through a U disk? You can learn about the following two commands:

  • docker save
  • docker load
