Using Azure Container Registry for Storing and Managing Images

Containerization has become more and more popular with both legacy and greenfield projects. It is not a surprise – being able to run an application using a statically defined runtime environment helps in both development and operations. It also saves time and resources. However, before you run a container, you need to define its image description and store it somewhere so that both developers and applications can fetch and run a container from it. This chapter should help you to find the proper solution for your case using Microsoft Azure.

In this chapter, you will learn about the following:

  • How to run and deploy your own image registry using Azure Container Registry
  • How to tag and version your images
  • What can be done to improve the reliability of your registry?
  • How to automate the most common tasks related to images
