This video is designed to take the viewer from zero to hero on building and deploying containerized workloads on Azure.

If you are interested in Docker and want to learn how to run containers on Azure, then this video is for you. Trainer Peter De Tender introduces you to key Docker concepts, shows you the core operations commands, and guides you through the concepts of a Dockerfile configuration script. Once the container image is ready, viewers will learn how to push the container image to Azure Container Registry, where it can be moved into a running state using Azure Container Instance and WebApp for Containers. Wrapping up the video will be discussion and coding on the topics of monitoring and security of your container workloads.

What You Will Learn

  • Gain an overview of containers and cloud concepts

  • Understand the differences between containers and virtual machines

  • Learn about the many Azure Container services

  • Get introduced to methods for monitoring and securing your container workloads

Who This Video is For

This video is for cloud architects, solution architects, IT sysadmins, and developers. Viewers should possess a basic understanding of networking, server operating systems, application building blocks, and cloud affinity. Having basic Azure or other public cloud experience is beneficial, but not required.

This video for IT pros is about building and deploying containerized workloads on Azure. Guidance for those who are interested in Docker and Azure.

Welcome to Building and Deploying Container Workloads On Azure. In this video, you will learn about the different services available in the Azure platform allowing you to run Docker container workloads. My name is Peter De Tender. I currently am a Microsoft employee in the premier Azure technical trainer team. Before that, I ran my own company for 10 years as a Microsoft consultant, trainer, and solution architect. I’m a Microsoft-certified trainer for a bit more than 10 years and was an Azure MVP for five years. If you should have any questions related to this course or any other one you find here from my side on the Apress platform, don’t hesitate reaching out where email or Twitter is probably the easiest way to grab me. It’s or @pdtit as my Twitter handle.

This video provides a walkthrough of building and hosting Docker containerised workloads and running them in different Azure containerised-supported services. The following topics will be covered throughout a different video series. I’m starting with an introduction to containers. I’m going to help you understanding a few Docker basic commands. From there, I’m going to walk you through the creation of a Docker file, the setup script that allows you to transform your application source code in a container image.

Once the baseline around containers has been configured, we’re going to move on and switching to the Azure platform covering Azure container registry, Azure container instance as your web app for containers, and closing with Kubernetes services on Azure. And wrapping it all up with the monitoring and security aspect of hosting your containers on the platform.

Now, for each and every of the topics mentioned here, I’m going to provide a mix of presentations sharing some real-life examples and mixing with quite a lot of demos. After going through each and every video, you should have learned enough about the foundational concepts to start migrating and running your containers on Azure.
