Web App for Containers

Run containerized web apps on Windows and Linux

  • Easily deploy and run containerised applications that scale with your business
  • Use a fully managed platform to perform infrastructure maintenance
  • Take advantage of built-in auto-scaling and load balancing
  • Streamline CI/CD with Docker Hub, Azure Container Registry and GitHub

Deploy to Azure in seconds

It has never been easier to deploy container-based web apps. Just pull container images from Docker Hub or a private Azure Container Registry, and Web App for Containers will deploy the containerised app with your preferred dependencies to production in seconds. The platform automatically takes care of OS patching, capacity provisioning and load balancing.

Deliver updates faster

Automate and simplify your container image deployments through continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) capabilities with Docker Hub, Azure Container Registry and Visual Studio Team Services. App Service creates an association with the selected repository, so your apps are updated each time your source code changes. Schedule performance and quality tests in a staging environment, and use deployment slots to swap staging to production in seconds, or roll back to previous versions without downtime.

Scale easily on demand

Automatically scale vertically and horizontally based on application needs. Granular scaling rules are available to handle peaks in workload automatically while minimising costs during off-peak times. Deploy data and host services across multiple locations with just a few mouse clicks.
