possible to containerize my mvc5 web application? RRS feed

    Hi guys,

    I have just made an asp.net MVC5 web app for a college project. Now I need to deploy it onto AWS. The easy option would be to use AWS Elastic Beanstalk but I would really like to familiarize myself with containerization so I had a quick look at AWS offerings and found AWS ECS.

    So my questions, is it possible to containerize my app along with its sql server or is containerization only for linux based systems? Will I need to use docker? Does docker even support windows containers? If yes, will my windows based containers be run on linux or windows VMs within AWS ECS?

    If this is possible, could someone point me in the direction or some article/tutorial video please? Apologies if these are some really poor/obvious questions.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi darego,

    In [this document](https://aws.amazon.com/ecs/), we can find Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) supports Docker containers, you can refer to following link to containerize the your ASP.NET MVC application and deploy to AWS using containers.
