A Docker swarm is a cluster of servers that run the Docker engine. Each server in a swarm is known as a node, of which there are two types. Manager nodes are used to orchestrate services, which are the desired state for containerized applications, such as the example ASP.NET Core MVC application or MySQL. A service describes how many containers should be created and which nodes in the cluster should run them. This is known as the service’s desired state.
