Microsoft and Docker on Tuesday unveiled several new cross-platform experiences that mark the next chapter in their ongoing partnership. At DockerCon, Azure CTO Mark Russinovich demoed the first ever multi-platform container application leveraging both Windows Server Containers and Linux containers and built, shipped and run using Docker.
- The first ever Windows Server Containe tainer was introduced on stage at //build by Docker’s own Ben Golub and that the command which started it was “docker run.” Today, in the DockerCon keynote, Mark Russinovich demonstrated the first ever multi-platform container application. Built, shipped and running using Docker, this container application is the first in the industry to work across both Windows Server and Linux. We want to bring you broad choice and flexibility for building your apps, combining Windows Server and Linux containers with Docker Compose and Docker Swarm, to offer a truly cross-platform experience.
- At //build we also showed onstage how you can use Visual Studio to publish a .NET application into a Docker container. Today, Mark demonstrated how development teams can use Visual Studio Online to define a customizable continuous integration pipeline to build, unit test, and deploy multiple containers defined using Docker Compose (screenshot below). For enterprises, Visual Studio Online also provides build tasks to deploy to a Docker Trusted Registry to provide a private repository of Docker images.
- Also, for the first time, we showcased how you can use the Azure Marketplace experience to deploy a single or a multi-container application sourced from an image from Docker Hub using Docker Compose (screen shot below). If you are looking to quickly learn how to deploy Docker on Azure, the Azure Marketplace now has all the solutions you need. It’s just a few clicks…give it a try!
- We also announced the addition of a Docker Trusted Registry VM image into the Azure Marketplace, offering an enterprise-ready Docker repository, behind the firewall, on an enterprise-ready public cloud!
