Docker for Azure

Docker for Azure is an integrated, easy-to-deploy environment for building, assembling, and shipping container applications on Microsoft Azure. As a native Azure application, Docker for Azure is optimized to the underlying Azure IaaS services and does not require any software to be installed.
