Docker on Azure:
Secure and manage enterprise container apps in the cloud!
Quickly and easily migrate your apps to Azure to increase security and modernize app services. With Docker deployment on Azure, you’re able to run modern and traditional Linux or Windows apps with enterprise-grade security, support, and scale.
Drive down operational costs and improve efficiency by taking advantage of a uniform operating model and secure supply chain for your traditional and cloud apps in Docker containers.
Azure integration offers some serious benefits, including the use of the familiar administrator user experience, easy access to the underlying Azure infrastructure and its capabilities without the need of additional configuration, an easy to manage network and auto-provisioned and audio configured load balancing.
Docker is a tool designed to make it easier to create, deploy, and run applications by using containers. Containers allow a developer to package up an application with all of the parts it needs, such as libraries and other dependencies, and ship it all out as one package. By doing so, thanks to the container, the developer can rest assured that the application will run on any other Linux machine regardless of any customized settings that machine might have that could differ from the machine used for writing and testing the code. In a way, Docker is a bit like a virtual machine. But unlike a virtual machine, rather than creating a whole virtual operating system, Docker allows applications to use the same Linux kernel as the system that they’re running on and only requires applications be shipped with things not already running on the host computer. This gives a significant performance boost and reduces the size of the application.
Docker Enterprise Edition (Docker EE) is designed for enterprise development and IT teams who build, ship, and run business-critical applications in production and at scale. Docker EE is integrated, certified, and supported to provide enterprises with the most secure container platform in the industry.
Docker supports both Linux and Windows Server containers and, also, supports microservices and traditional app workloads. Management and operation are achieved through an integrated graphical user interface while granular Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) and support for Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and Azure Active Directory integration are offered. Docker supports an end-to-end security model for a more secure supply chain.
