Manage Container Instance Zero-to-One And One-to-Many Using Container Service Orchestrator (Java)

Azure Container Instance sample for managing container instances.

  • Create an Azure Container Registry to be used for holding private Docker container images
  • If a local Docker engine cannot be found, create a Linux virtual machine that will host a Docker engine to be used for this sample
  • Use Docker Java to create a Docker client that will push/pull an image to/from Azure Container Registry
  • Pull a test image from the public Docker repo (tomcat:8) to be used as a sample for pushing/pulling to/from an Azure Container Registry
  • Create an Azure container group with a container instance using the container image that was pushed to the container registry created above
  • Test that the container app can be reached via "curl" like HTTP GET calls
  • Retrieve container log content
  • Create a SSH private/public key to be used when creating a container service
  • Create an Azure Container Service with Kubernetes orchestration
  • Log in via the SSH client and download the Kubernetes config
  • Create a Kubernetes client using the Kubernetes config file downloaded from one of the virtual machine managers
  • Create a Kubernetes namespace
  • Create a Kubernetes secret of type "docker-registry" using the Azure Container Registry credentials from above
  • Create a Kubernetes replication controller using a container image from the Azure private registry from above and a load balancer service that will expose the app to the world
