Docker Migration to Azure

Hi there,

I had searched this a lot with no hope. So, Please bear with me and don't rush answering with general articles.

On-premises we have a physical Docker server running container.

We are looking to move those containers to Azure Web Apps or Kubernetes.

Azure migrate only assess and move applications running on physical or vms to Azure. So it doesn't fit.

Do we have in Microsoft any way to move those containers to azure?

    JMN-2253, There is no direct tool specific for this purpose. Just to clarify, we don’t migrate servers to AKS, we migrate the workloads running on them (where possible).

    Based on your requirement - You may follow the steps outlined in this doc section Deploy the containerized app on AKS:
    Azure App Containerization ASP.NET; Containerization and migration of ASP.NET applications to Azure Kubernetes. - Azure Migrate | Microsoft Learn

    If you wish you may share your feedback on Uservoice - All of the feedback, you share in these forums will be monitored and reviewed by the Microsoft engineering teams responsible for building Azure. Additionally, users with a similar request can up-vote your post and add their comments.

    I have also shared the feedback on this internally to our team.
    Much appreciate your feedback! Thanks for your patience.

    So, where do you store the container images? You can simply migrate images from your local storage (Artifactory or other common solutions) to Azure Container Registry, and then spin out new containers from the images on Azure with Azure Container Apps or AKS.
