Windows Containers

App Service supports Windows Containers! Deploying your application in a Windows Container enables you to bring along dependencies such as custom fonts, cultures and GAC deployed assemblies. When deploying a containerized application, the Windows Container is an isolation and security boundary. As a result, calls to libraries that would normally be blocked by the Azure App Service will instead succeed when running inside of a Windows Container. For example, many PDF generation libraries make calls to graphics device interface (GDI) APIs. With Windows Containers, these calls will succeed.
