Microsoft announces general availability of Azure Container Instances

ACI GA - Imgur

Last year, announced a new Azure service called Azure Container Instances (ACI) that makes it even easier to deploy containers in the cloud. It delivers containers without any Virtual Machine infrastructure to manage. ACIs are the fastest and easiest way to run a container in the cloud. Microsoft today announced the general availability of Azure Container Instances (ACI). Microsoft today also announced new lower pricing, making it even cheaper to deploy a single container in the cloud.

An Azure Container Instance is a single container that is billed by the second. It allows developers to select the exact amount of memory separate from the exact count of vCPUs based on their needs. Since containers are a first-class object of the Azure platform, it offers Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) on the instance and billing tags to track usage at the individual container level. As ACI directly exposes containers, there is no need to learn about VM management. Developers need to just develop their app in a container.
