How to create docker image from EC2

0 votes
Hi,

We are running two applications on AWS Windows EC2 Server. Due to heavy usage with one application, we have planned to move AWS ECS Service. But if we use AWS ECS, then we need docker images in ECR. How can we create docker image from AWS EC2 windows server? Then how can i push to docker image to docker repo? Is possible to create docker image from AWS EC2 Windows Server?

Hi@Lakshminarayanan,

As you said you have a Windows instance, then you need to install Docker Desktop for the Windows system. After that launch one container and deploy your application. From that container, you can build one image and push it to your docker hub account.

Ok dear, I will start and update here. Many thanks for your reply. Can u tell me how to launch windows container. Basically i need windows 2016 server container. Can u tell me the steps to launch container and how to access it from myself??

Hi,

According to your requirement, you don't need to create an image.  Windows 2016 container is already available in ECR. You can create a cluster from there and deploy your application. To get more information about the commands, you can go through the below link.
