AWS App2Container (A2C) now supports Azure DevOps for setting up a CI/CD pipeline to automate building and deploying container applications on AWS. With this release, customers can leverage App2Container to automate the setup of Azure DevOps service pipeline for managing automated build and deployment of containerized applications. App2Container automates the build pipeline setup by installing the required tooling such as AWS Toolkit and the Docker engine. In addition, App2Container also sets up the release pipeline using existing Azure DevOps Service accounts to deploy the containerize image to AWS container services. This is in addition to AWS CodePipeline and Jenkins support already included in App2Container.

AWS App2Container (A2C) is a command-line tool for modernizing .NET and Java applications into containerized applications. A2C analyzes and builds an inventory of all applications running in virtual machines, on premises, or in the cloud. You simply select the application you want to containerize, and A2C packages the application artifact and identified dependencies into container images, configures the network ports, and generates the ECS task and Kubernetes pod definitions.
