SKILLS & TRICKS
A few years back everyone was talking about Virtualization and how it has changed the IT Landscape – now Microsoft Azure has come up with Containers which is the next big thing in the Cloud Computing world. Containers would be able to run on any hardware, cloud or any environment without much modification. What this means is that Customers would now be able to write their Apps once and deploy everywhere – Test, Dev or Production.
Microsoft is planning to provide an approach to manage containers in the cloud through scaling containers in production with proven open source container orchestration technology. In recent days Microsoft has released a lot of updates to Azure Container Service to enhance and streamline, open and flexible way for running container applications in the cloud. Some of the major updates are mentioned below:
This also means that we can modify and customize deployments of the service beyond what is possible today. Contributions from the community will help Microsoft offer a better and stable service on Azure.
In the end, Microsoft Azure is the only public cloud with a container service that offers a choice of open source orchestration technologies, DC/OS, Docker Swarm and Kubernetes, making it easier for us and our teams to adopt containers in the cloud using the tools we are most familiar with.
