Why Azure Container Instances is a such a cool feature!

For those who haven’t seen it yet, Microsoft this week announced Azure Container Instances which is a new way of delivering Container instances on Azure.

Up until now Microsoft has had the ability to deliver Containers on Azure using Azure Container Service, where we specify which kind of orchestration engine we would like to use and specify the amount of worker nodes (virtual machines) we would like to have.  Then we were bound to that amount of virtual machine instances and the containers running on top of those virtual machines.

Azure Container Service is a free service on its own, but we are billed by the amount of virtual machines we are using underneath all the containers runnings per minute. That also means that the virtual machines that are being used by Azure Container Service is part of our responsibility.

So this means that if we have 10 virtual machines in a Kubernetes cluster but we are only using a limited amount of nodes it means that we need to pay for all virtual machines per minute. So not really cloud native right?

Now this is the cool part about Azure container Instances is that we do not actually need to think about the underlying virtual machines, all we need to care about is the container itself.
