Azure offers multiple services that can run containers. This course helps you get started with Docker and introduces four key Azure services that simplify deploying individual containers or entire microservice applications.
Docker is a great way to package and run applications, and Azure is a great platform to host containers. In this course, Microsoft Azure Developer: Deploying and Managing Containers, you'll learn about the key Azure services that support containers. First, you'll learn the basics of Docker, including how to run containers locally, as well as build them from your own Dockerfiles. Next, you'll see how to push images to Azure Container Registry. Finally, you'll explore four different Azure services that can host containers, including Azure Kubernetes Service and Azure Service Fabric, learning how to get started with them and what unique benefits they offer. When you're finished with this course, you'll know several ways of deploying containers in Azure and how to choose the most appropriate one for your needs whether you are running a simple web app or an entire microservice application.

Course Overview Hi everyone. My name's Mark Heath, and welcome to my course, Microsoft Azure Developer: Deploying and Managing Containers. I'm a Microsoft Azure MVP, and I work as a cloud architect at NICE Systems. Docker containers are a fantastic way to package and deploy your applications, and Azure offers several services that make hosting those containers in the cloud really easy. In this course, I'm going to introduce you to everything you need to know to containerize your applications and get them up and running in the cloud. We'll start by seeing how to run Docker containers locally and how to create our own images using Dockerfiles, and then we'll see how we can host those images in Azure Container Registry. Next, we'll explore four key Azure services that can run your containers, starting with Azure Container Instances, which offer serverless container hosting, and then Azure Web App for Containers, a great platform for hosting web applications, before moving on to explore two extremely powerful container orchestrators, Azure Kubernetes Service and Azure Service Fabric, both of which are ideal for hosting containerized microservice applications. By the end of this course, you'll have a solid understanding of the tools and services at your disposal for deploying containers to Azure, and you'll be able to follow along with this course, even if you've not used Docker or Azure before. But if you want to try out the demo scenarios yourself, it will help if you've already got an Azure subscription and know how to use the Azure portal. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn all about hosting containers with the Microsoft Azure Developer: Deploying and Managing Containers course, at Pluralsight.
