Jitsi meets Docker

Jitsi Meet is composed of several components which work together for delivering the best video conferences, as you are used to already.

When it comes to deploying these to production, there are, of course, many ways to do it. For a long time we have advocated for using our Debian meta-package, which installs all packages in a single server. This is a great way to start, and with a little configuration you can scale the deployment to multiple servers (checkout this article and video for more details).

In the era of containers and Docker, separating all these components into containers is another possibility. Today we are happy to introduce our Docker files which make deploying Jitsi Meet a breeze. Please take a look at the official GitHub repository.

The containers are linked together with Docker Compose. Now, running your own Jitsi Meet service is as simple as filling in a couple of configuration options and running docker-compose up

Since this is the first release, we have marked this as experimental, and we will be making more improvements. Please test it out and stay tuned!
