"easy to run applications with hypervisor isolation on Azure without managing servers!!!"

What do you like best?

Because of Azure Container Instances (ACI), you can focus on designing and building your applications instead of managing the infrastructure that runs them,we can use it for data processing where source data is ingested, processed and placed in a durable store such as Azure Blob storage!!

What do you dislike?

the containers are so much automated they should left some task customize able , so it's not user friendly!!

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's best platform for any beginner because you can develop apps fast without managing virtual machines or having to learn new tools!!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

we mainly use it for our data-processing application and for Event-driven applications !!!

"Good performance but quite expensive"

What do you like best?

I can use the portal to create a container, no need to worry about provisioning virtual machines to host the container or installing software.

Instances can be created with a single-line PowerShell command and will be up-and-running in minutes.

Azure Container Instances also support container groups.

What do you dislike?

Not yet possible to attach them to an Azure virtual network.

Running an instance 24/7 will be more expensive than running a virtual machine of the same size.

More expensive than Amazon Container Service, which has been the most popular.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Azure Container Instances is a relatively new service and does still have some limitations. I have not seen any feature of Azure Container Instances that Amazon Container Service does not have. However, it is definitely a good option.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I tried to use Azure Container Instances to run a large database system. It has high performance.

What Container Orchestration solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Azure Container Instances"

Azure offers a very flexible service for managing containers without having to worry about managing VMs.

It is a new service but as with all Microsoft products it will develop quickly and offer new features faster than you can learn how to use them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can certainly look at other services but with Microsoft's dedication to Azure and their cloud services they are constantly adding new features.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Providing scalable app services without having to manage VMs or servers. Benefits include reduced downtime and lower admin costs.

"Great tool for container orchestration "

What do you like best?

What I like best is that its container orchestration solution that best suits my needs.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I dislike is the possible privacy issues since it is a public cloud without having provision to manage.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is most helpful because it is cloud based for companies and manages a service on its own.
