It's the weekend before Microsoft Ignite 2020 and all the Azure services are a buzz! Here is the news the team will be covering this week: Azure Site Recovery update rollup 50, NFS 4.1 support for Azure Files is now in preview, Azure IoT Central August 2020 update, Azure Container Instances - Docker integration now in Docker Desktop stable release and of course our Microsoft Learn module of the week.

Azure Files now adds support for NFS v4.1 file system protocol for an easy migration of your Linux-centric workloads. Any application ever written for Linux file systems can run on NFS. Here is a subset of customer use cases we have seen during the preview:
A plethora of updates and features are being made available which are included in the August 2020 update. The new features and updates include:
The Azure Docker integration enables you to deploy serverless containers to Azure Container Instances (ACI) using the same Docker Command-line (CLI) commands from local development. Use docker run to spin up a single-container or docker compose up to deploy multi-container applications defined with a Docker Compose file. You can also view logs, attach a shell, and perform other actions against the containers running in ACI, just as if those containers were running locally. In addition, you can now use Compose to attach Azure File Share volume mounts to your containers in either a local or ACI context.
This MS Learn module provides an introduction of the benefits of using Docker containers as a containerization platform. It will also cover how to evaluate whether Docker is an appropriate containerization platform for you and detail how the components of Docker containers support compute container implementations.
