Containers offer a great way to develop and run applications in a consistent environment. You can develop your app in a container on your local development machine, and run that same container in production, thereby eliminating differences in infrastructure between environments. And now, you can easily run containers in Azure with Azure Container Apps. Azure Container Apps abstracts the overhead of infrastructure and orchestration, making it easy for you to deploy and run a container.
In this post, we'll deploy a sample container to Azure Container Apps.
If you want to follow along, you'll need the following:
We'll start by creating an Azure Container Apps resource from the Azure portal.
When the Container App is deployed, navigate to it in the Azure portal. You'll see that it has an Application URL.
Click on the Application URL to open the sample application that is now running in the Container App.
You can configure the Container App by changing the ingress settings, to enable or disable incoming traffic and the target network port. You can also configure secrets that the container can use, and setup continuous deployment with GitHub Actions to automatically build and deploy code to the Container App. Pretty cool.
Azure Container Apps offers an easy way to run containers in Azure with minimal configuration and management overhead. Azure does the heavy lifting for you. Create a trial account today and go and check it out!
