Azure Monitor for Containers with Prometheus support for AKS engines is now in preview

Prometheus integration with Azure Monitor for containers is now in preview and brings together the best of two worlds. Typically, to use Prometheus you need to set up and manage a Prometheus server with a database.

A seamless onboarding experience to collect Prometheus metrics with Azure Monitor is provided.
