Fernando Rolnik and Jorge Arteiro tried the new Docker functionality that allows running docker containers as Azure Container Instances (ACI) straight from your docker CLI. You only need an Azure Account, the free account is suitable to test it.
- Download and install the latest Docker Desktop Edge (From 19.03.12)
docker versionand check the version and Azure integration
docker login azureand login to your Azure account in your browser
docker context create aci <context name>to create your Azure context
- Select the desired resource group
docker context listto see all contexts
docker context use <context name>to use your Azure context
- From this point, you can run any container on Azure as you run in your machine, eg docker run
docker psto check the container and the public IP
- You can monitor your container from the Azure Portal on the Container Instances blade.
