About

Docker is a platform for running server applications in lightweight units called containers. You can run Docker on Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10, and run your existing apps in containers to get significant improvements in efficiency, security, and portability.

This book teaches you all you need to know about Docker on Windows, from 101 to deploying highly-available workloads in production. This book takes you on a Docker journey, starting with the key concepts and simple examples of how to run .NET Framework and .NET Core apps in Windows Docker containers. Then it moves on to more complex examples—using Docker to modernize the architecture and development of traditional ASP.NET and SQL Server apps.

The examples show you how to break up monoliths into distributed apps and deploy them to a clustered environment in the cloud, using the exact same artifacts you use to run them locally. To help you move confidently to production, it then explains Docker security, and the management and support options.

The book finishes with guidance on getting started with Docker in your own projects, together with some real-world case studies for Docker implementations, from small-scale on-premises apps to very large-scale apps running on Azure.

Features
  • Package traditional .NET Frameworks apps and new .NET Core apps as Docker images, and run them in containers for increased efficiency, portability, and security
  • Design and implement distributed applications that run across connected containers, using enterprise-grade open source software from public Docker images
  • Build a full Continuous Deployment pipeline for a .NET Framework application, and deploy it to a highly-available Docker swarm running in the cloud

Authors

Elton Stoneman

Elton Stoneman has been a Microsoft MVP since 2010 and a Pluralsight author since 2013. Before joining Docker he spent 15 years as a consultant, architecting and delivering large and successful solutions built on .NET and powered by Windows, Docker, and Azure.

He's enjoying working with the new evolution of Microsoft stack, helping people understand the great opportunities to modernize existing .NET Framework apps with Docker, and run them alongside new .NET Core apps in Windows and Linux containers.

He blogs, tweets, teaches and speaks about Docker all the time. He is a regular at Docker and .NET user groups and he's had great fun speaking at conferences around the world, including DockerCon, NDC, DevSum, BuildStuff, WinOps, and Techorama.
