Managed to get ASP.NET 5 preview up and working via Visual Studio 2015 RC in a Docker container hosted on my local Ubuntu server (read; not an Azure hosted server). All in Oracle VirtualBox Virtual Machines.
My VirtualBox host is a Windows 8.1 box and I used two VMs: a Windows 7 Development Box (I tried Windows 8.1 in a VM and the performance was terrible) and a Ubuntu Server 14.04.2.

After publishing from Visual Studio I was able to get a list of the images on the Docker server and it now included the new published app:
So the next challange is to get MongoDB setup running in a Dockerized instance on my Ubuntu server then create a ASP.NET MVC application consuming that server and publish that via Docker and see how performance and maintenance plays out.
