What’s New in #Microsoft Azure DevTest LABs and More #Azure #DevOps #Docker #Containers #Cloud

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

JamesTestLAB

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 😉

#Microsoft Azure CLI 2.0 in Ubuntu #Bash of #Windows 10 #Linux #Azure #DevOps

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

For Debian/Ubuntu based systems, you can install Azure CLI 2.0 via apt-get. 

    1. Modify your sources list.
      • 32-bit system
        Copy
        bash
        echo "deb https://packages.microsoft.com/repos/azure-cli/ wheezy main" | \
             sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/azure-cli.list
        
      • 64-bit system
        Copy
        bash
        echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://packages.microsoft.com/repos/azure-cli/ wheezy main" | \
             sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/azure-cli.list
        
    2. Run the following sudo commands:
      Copy
      bash
      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
      

 

When you install with apt-get, az component isn’t supported. To update the CLI, use the following commands: 

Copy
bash
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install azure-cli

Microsoft #Containers for Application Development #Docker #Hyperv #ACS #DevOps #Cloud

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.

 To begin with Windows Containers, I advice to manage them with Docker and do .NET Docker Development with Visual Studio 2017

Prerequisites: 

Containers 101 poster

Windows Containers Infrastructure

Microsoft Windows Container with Nano server :

Docker pull microsoft/nanoserver

Docker PS

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.

This page details how to use the docker run command to define the container’s resources at runtime

Containers can run anywhere !
