Happy Learning with your online LAB
Azure DevTest Labs is a service that helps developers and testers quickly create environments in Azure while minimizing waste and controlling cost. You can test the latest version of your application by quickly provisioning Windows and Linux environments using reusable templates and artifacts. Easily integrate your deployment pipeline with DevTest Labs to provision on-demand environments. Scale up your load testing by provisioning multiple test agents, and create pre-provisioned environments for training and demos.
Here you see my Azure TestLAB and I will add a Docker artifact to my Running VM
Here you find the Getting Started Documentation
In your TestLAB you can work with RBAC
Here you see the Roles in Azure DevTest LAB.
In my JamesTestLAB I have a Container01 with Windows Server 2016 with Container running.
Via the Marketplace for Artifacts, I select the Docker for Windows Server 2016 artifact 😉

Azure CLI 2.0 in Bash
If you use Ubuntu Bash in Windows 10 and like to work with Microsoft Azure Cloud Services you can install Azure CLI 2.0 for Linux
- Modify your sources list.
- 32-bit system
echo "deb https://packages.microsoft.com/repos/azure-cli/ wheezy main" | \ sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/azure-cli.list
- 64-bit system
echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://packages.microsoft.com/repos/azure-cli/ wheezy main" | \ sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/azure-cli.list
- 32-bit system
- Run the following sudo commands:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver packages.microsoft.com --recv-keys 417A0893 sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install azure-cli
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install azure-cli
Microsoft Azure CLI 2.0 from a Docker Container
CMD Azure VM -h
Here you find the Complete Microsoft Azure Command Line Interface 2.0 (CLI) Reference Guide and use -h option in the CLI

Containers for Developers
From a developer’s desktop to a testing machine to a set of production machines, a Docker image can be created that will deploy identically across any environment in seconds. This story has created a massive and growing ecosystem of applications packaged in Docker containers, with DockerHub, the public containerized-application registry that Docker maintains, currently publishing more than 180,000 applications in the public community repository.
When you containerize an app, only the app and the components needed to run the app are combined into an “image”. Containers are then created from this image as you need them. You can also use an image as a baseline to create another image, making image creation even faster. Multiple containers can share the same image, which means containers start very quickly and use fewer resources. For example, you can use containers to spin up light-weight and portable app components – or ‘micro-services’ – for distributed apps and quickly scale each service separately.
Because the container has everything it needs to run your application, they are very portable and can run on any machine that is running Windows Server 2016. You can create and test containers locally, then deploy that same container image to your company’s private cloud, public cloud or service provider. The natural agility of Containers supports modern app development patterns in large scale, virtualized and cloud environments.
With containers, developers can build an app in any language. These apps are completely portable and can run anywhere – laptop, desktop, server, private cloud, public cloud or service provider – without any code changes.
Containers helps developers build and ship higher-quality applications, faster.
- One computer system (physical or virtual) running Windows Server 2016.
- Configure this system with the Windows Container feature and Docker. For a walkthrough on these steps, see Windows Containers on Windows Server.
- QuickStart Windows Containers on Windows 10
- A Docker ID, this will be used to push a container image to Docker Hub. If you do not have a Docker ID, sign up for one at Docker Cloud.
Windows Containers Infrastructure
Microsoft Windows Container with Nano server :
Docker pull microsoft/nanoserver
Docker run -t -I microsoft/nanoserver
Now you are inside the Windows Container on the Nano Server
If you want a Windows Container with Nano Server and IIS running for a website checkout this Docker Pull

Docker run reference
Docker runs processes in isolated containers. A container is a process which runs on a host. The host may be local or remote. When an operator executes
docker run, the container process that runs is isolated in that it has its own file system, its own networking, and its own isolated process tree separate from the host.
Containers can run anywhere !
