The documentation at

setup the environment for using docker containers on Azure Batch.

> Azure Batch has support for docker containers. Using this feature allows the Azure Batch
Job (the REEF driver) or Azure Batch Task (the REEF evaluator) to run within the environment
of a docker container. This gives the user the flexibility to define any environment setup
inside the dockerfile that defines the docker image instead of defining the environment completely
inside the virtual machine image that is used for the creation of the Azure Batch pool.
> The Azure batch pool is tied to the VM image upon creation and cannot be changed. Enabling
docker container support gives the added flexibility to use the same pool but add an extra
layer of setup which can be defined separately for each job.
