Options for Hosting Containers in Azure

Info here is compiled & paraphrased from various sources that are hyperlinked. Please refer back to the official sources for the latest information as this topic is constantly evolving

Containers are a relatively new kind of virtualization called operating system virtualization. Machine virtualization takes a single machine and simulates lots of machines. Containers take a single operating system installation (physical or virtual machine) and simulate lots of operating system installations.

Containers offer near-instant deployment and are a great way of moving legacy code into a DevOps lifecycle.

Deployment times are shortened, maintenance is easier, and scale-out/in is possible in seconds

Containers in Azure:

Azure Service Features
Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)
Azure Container Instances
  • Easily run containers on Azure with a single command
  • Serverless way of doing containers. Azure manages the host VMs
  • No dedicated instances
  • SLA - 99.9%
  • Suitable architecture styles - Microservices, task automation, batch jobs
  • ACI is not intended to be an orchestrator. However, you can combine the elastic scale of ACI with the orchestration capability of Kubernetes by using the ACI Connector for Kubernetes
  • Per-second billing model. Cost effective for occasionally running workloads (will cost more for continuously running workloads)
Azure Container Registry
Azure Service Fabric
  • Develop microservices and orchestrate containers on Windows or Linux
  • Windows and Linux containers can use Service Fabric but it is best suited to Windows. Besides containers, it can also host services, guest executables 
  • Auto-scaling through VM Scale Sets
  • Service Fabric is a free service, therefore, it does not have a financially backed SLA itself. The availability of your Service Fabric cluster is based on the SLA of the underlying virtual machines and storage resources used.
  • Suitable architecture styles - Microservices, Event-driven architecture

Azure App Service
Azure Batch
