Choose the cloud platform designed for your container needs
- Develop, update and manage your containerised applications faster with end to end developer and CI/CD tools.
- Store images in Docker Hub or Azure Container Registry and deploy to your preferred targets.
- Deploy containers using widely adopted orchestrator or choose a fully-managed container platform.
Accelerate containerised application development
Work with tools designed for containers
Automatically scaffold and containerise your applications and deploy to an AKS cluster using Azure CLI or the point-and-click publishing feature in Visual Studio.
Streamline your development of multi-container applications
Build and debug Docker containers from any language and iterate across multiple running containers. Get insight into Docker build processes using Visual Studio or Visual Studio Code.
Easily add continuous integration and deployment
Integrate containers into your existing agile and DevOps workflows with DevOps Project and Visual Studio Team Services. Push Docker images to an authenticated registry, and use Docker command line operations.
Deploy containerised applications in your preferred environment
Get hybrid platform support
Lift and shift your portfolio of applications to containers and deploy in Azure, Azure Stack or your own datacenter. Establish a flexible, unified approach to building and managing applications that can run on-premises or in the cloud.
Maximise deployment flexibility
Scale and orchestrate containers using your choice of compute service: Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), Service Fabric and App Service.
Manage, monitor, and help secure your containers
Efficiently manage container images
Manage a Docker private registry as a first-class Azure resource with Container Registry. Manage container images with familiar, open-source Docker command-line interface (CLI) tools.
