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.
