Build and deploy modern apps and microservices at scale
Azure Container Apps is a fully managed Kubernetes-based application platform that helps you deploy apps from code or containers without orchestrating complex infrastructure. Build heterogeneous modern apps or microservices with unified centralized networking, observability, dynamic scaling, and configuration for higher productivity. Design resilient microservices with full support for Dapr and dynamic scaling powered by KEDA.
Support for open-source technology with end-to-end developer productivity, debugging, logging, and Azure DevOps
Advanced identity and access management to monitor container governance at scale and secure your environment
Scalable, portable platform with low management costs for improved velocity to production
Flexible deployments on your infrastructure of choice from the cloud to the edge with Azure Arc
Rapidly build and deploy microservices
Achieve high developer velocity and app-centric productivity while using open standards on a cloud-native foundation with no programming model requirement. Include Azure Container Apps, Azure Functions, and Azure Spring Apps in the same execution environment with unified networking and observability. Simplify runtime portability with Dapr using built-in pluggable components for tasks like event processing, pub/sub, and service invocation. Autoscale apps to zero using in-built KEDA.
Get hosting plans for all your needs
Execute your code in serverless or dedicated mode.
Enforce regulatory compliance controls using Azure Policy, with built-in guardrails and cloud security benchmarks. Get fine-grained identity and access control using Azure Active Directory.
Use UDR and leverage Azure Firewall for secure egress traffic. Troubleshoot using a container console, view real-time log streams, gain performance and health insights with Azure Monitor metrics explorer, and view and monitor logs with Log Analytics.
Build multitype serverless cloud-native microservices
Maximize productivity with a serverless container service built for microservices, robust autoscaling, and no infrastructure management. Provision heterogeneous containers in an Azure Container App environment with Azure Functions and Azure Spring Apps for a unified and managed application platform experience. Rely on built-in service discovery options for microservice communication and managed HTTP and HTTP/2 ingress endpoints based on Envoy.
Deploy from the cloud to the edge with Azure Arc
Setup code-to-cloud pipelines using GitHub Actions or Azure DevOps. Perform application lifecycle tasks such as application upgrades, versioning, and traffic shifting with straightforward configurations. Use Azure Arc for Azure Container Apps to build portable microservices across multicloud environments.

Flexible pricing options to fit your needs
Get started with the free tier. The first 180,000 vCPU per second, 360,000 GiB/s, and 2 million requests each month are free. With scale to zero, pay for only what you use, by the second.
Get started with an Azure free account
After your credit, move to pay as you go to keep building with the same free services. Pay only if you use more than your free monthly amounts.

Frequently asked questions about Azure Container Apps
Yes, this is the default configuration. When the minimum instances setting is zero, you'll pay only when your app is active in response to events and/or requests.
Yes. The first 180,000 vCPU per second, 360,000 GiB/s, and 2 million requests each month are free. Beyond that, you'll pay for what you use based on the number of vCPU per second and Gbps your applications consume.
Active usage occurs while your container is starting or while there is at least one request being processed by the application. By default, applications scale to zero. You can also configure Container Apps with a minimum number of instances to always run in idle mode. Idle usage is charged at a reduced rate when the application isn't processing any requests.
- You can create a Spring app using your existing flows or templates with the option to specify an Azure Container Apps environment.
- You can continue using the current features of Azure Spring Apps.
- You have the option to use common platform capabilities through additional controls in the Azure Spring Apps blade.
- You can also switch to using common platform capabilities. Azure Spring Apps will provide a way to either override local capability with platform capability or synchronize with the centralized platform capability.
