VMware on Microsoft introducing Azure Container Instances

Microsoft just introduced a brand-new Azure service aimed at making it easier for developers to deploy containers for their applications. The new service is called Azure Container Instances (ACI). Here’s some more information about the new offering from Microsoft and how it could make certain functions easier for developers.

What are Azure Container Instances?

An Azure Container Instance is a single container that starts deploying in just seconds and is then billed by the second. By using ACI, developers gain access to highly versatile sizing options, allowing them to select the exact amount of memory separate from the exact count of vCPUs. This means that applications will fit perfectly on the infrastructure and your containers won’t be billed for any extra seconds beyond what is actually required or use any extra GBs.

How to use Azure Container Instances

Microsoft’s goal for ACI is to deliver a simple experience for those just getting started with containers in the cloud. Container instances are available now in public preview for Linux containers. Microsoft also announced that Windows support for containers will become available in the coming weeks. You can deploy the new tool using Azure CLI, a template, a public repository like DockerHub, or your own private repository using the Azure Container Registry.
