Creating a Containerized Application

A containerized application is a group of instances running on CCE. CCE provides third-party application hosting to help you manage the full lifecycle from deployment to O&M. This section describes how to use a container image to create a containerized application.


  • A cluster has been created and a node has been added to the cluster.
  • An elastic IP address has been bound to the node and the elastic IP address of the node has been obtained.


  1. Log in to the CCE console. In the navigation pane, choose Application Management.
  2. Click Create Application, and set Select Application Type to Stateless Applications.
  3. Set the following parameters as specified, and retain the default settings for other parameters:

  4. Click Next. Click Add Container. On the Third-party Images tab page, set Authenticate Secret to No and Image Address to nginx:latest, indicating that the latest Nginx version is selected from the third-party images. Click OK.
  5. Retain the default settings for the image parameters, and click Next.
  6. Click Add Access Mode, and set the parameters listed in Table 1 as specified.


    In this example, the Nginx application will be accessible from the Internet by using the elastic IP address.
