Azure Container Service

Published date: 26 April, 2017

Azure Container Service will be the fastest way to realise the benefits of running containers in production. It will use customers’ preferred choice of open source technology, tools and skills, combined with the confidence of solid support and a thriving community ecosystem. Simplified configurations of proven open source container orchestration technology, optimised to run in the Azure cloud, will be provided. In just a few clicks, customers will be able to deploy in production container-based applications and on a framework designed to help manage the complexity of containers deployed at scale. Unlike other container services, Azure Container Service is built on 100% open source software and will offer a choice between open source DC/OS or Docker Swarm.
