Course Description:

The Azure Container Service (ACS) is a cloud-based container deployment and management service that supports popular open source tools and technologies for container and container orchestration. ACS allows you to run containers at scale in production and manages the underlying infrastructure for you by configuring the appropriate VMs and clusters for you. ACS is orchestrator-agnostic and allows you to use the container orchestration solution that best suits your needs. Learn how to use ACS to scale and orchestrate applications using DC/OS, Docker Swarm, or Kubernetes.

Intended Audience:

  • Developers
  • Operation Engineers
  • DevOps
  • Anyone interested in managing containers at scale

Pre-requisites:

  • Viewers should have a basic understanding of containers.
  • Some familiarity with the Azure platform will also be helpful but is not required.

Learning Objectives:

  • Demonstrate how to use ACS to create virtual machine hosts and clusters for container orchestration
  • Understand how to choose an open source orchestration solution for ACS
  • Understand how to run containers in production on Azure using ACS
  • Demonstrate ability to scale and orchestrate containers with DC/OS, Docker Swarm, and Kubernetes
