Deploying a Docker Composed Application on Service Fabric

/ 14 Jun, 2017

Last week on the Build 2017 conference in Seattle, Microsoft showed how they have added support for Docker compose to Azure Service Fabric. They demonstrated this on stage during a breakout session on day 2.

When you want to try this yourself the getting started is missing a lot of information.

In this post, I will try to explain what you have to do to get this running.

First you have to make sure you deploy a Service Fabric cluster in Azure which meets the following prerequisites:

  • Deployed on Windows Server 2016 Datacenter with Containers
  • Has fabric version 255.255.5713.255 or newer
  • Has DnsService deployed and enabled
  • Has port 80 opened on the loadbalancer


After these requirements are met you can deploy a Docker composed application to this cluster using the Azure CLI.
