Docker Compose[1] is a tool available since 2014 for defining and running multi-container Docker applications.

Rules are defined in docker-compose.yml and executed by running docker-compose up.

docker-compose allows to define start order dependencies between containers.

For reference of valid options for docker compose check: https://docs.docker.com/compose/compose-file/
