Azure Container Registry provides storage of private Docker container images, enabling fast, scalable retrieval, and network-close deployment of container workloads on Azure. Additional capabilities include geo-replication, image signing with Docker Content Trust, Helm Chart Repositories and Task base compute for building, testing, patching container workloads.

Dedicated agent pool billing (preview)

Dedicated agent pools are billed by the number of CPUs allocated/second instead of the duration it took to run a task. Agent pools can be scaled down to zero when not in use.

The current preview provides 3 standard tiers, S1 (2 vCPU, 3 GB RAM), S2 (4 vCPU, 8 GB RAM) and S3 (8 vCPU, 16 GB RAM) and 1 isolated tier, I6(64 vCPUs, 216 GB RAM).

Support & SLA


  • Basic, Standard and Premium tiers include an amount of storage as part of their pricing. As storage exceeds the included amount, registries are charged for their additional storage.

  • Yes, it is possible to change the SKU in the managed tier using the Azure CLI. Users will be charged at the price for the previous SKU up until the point of the change, and with the new SKU price after the change is made.

  • The bill will display the cost of each managed registry based on the SKU of the registry, as well as any network charges.

  • Standard networking fees apply to network egress from or between azure data centres. We recommend maintaining a registry in the same datacenter as your container deployments. See the geo-replication feature to manage multiple regions as one, providing network-close deployments across multiple regions.
