Deploying Docker containers to Azure

Kubernetes has "won" so quickly to become a default containers orchestrator that documentation of cloud services sometimes didn't catch up with software updates. 
On Azure, it used to be Azure Container Service
  • used to be "ACS": meaning that you one can deploy Linux VM instance with choice of containers orchestration tool: DC/OS, Docker Swarm or Kubernetes. 
  • now it is "AKS": As a hosted Kubernetes service.
Introduction to Azure Container Service for Kubernetes | Microsoft Docs
Microsoft Azure
"Azure Container Service, currently known as ACS, which has grown 300% in the last six months. Now with the preview of AKS, we are making it even easier to manage and operate your Kubernetes environments, all without sacrificing portability. This new service features an Azure-hosted control plane, automated upgrades, self-healing, easy scaling, and a simple user experience for both developers and cluster operators. With AKS, customers get the benefit of open source Kubernetes without complexity and operational overhead."
