Azure Container Instance Management
Azure Container Instance Management is a service that enables you to deploy containers on the Microsoft Azure public cloud without having to provision or manage any underlying infrastructure.
The service, which supports both Linux and Windows containers, eliminates the need for you to provision virtual machines, or implement a container orchestration platform, such as Kubernetes, to deploy and run containers. Instead, with Azure Container Instances you can spin up a new container using the Azure Container Instance Management connector actions, and Microsoft automatically provisions and scales the underlying compute resources. Azure containers also support standard Docker images you can pull from a container registry, such as Docker Hub or Azure Container Registry. For more information on Azure Container Instance Management see the company website.
