Azure Container Instances vs Azure Container Service: What are the differences?
Developers describe Azure Container Instances as "Easily run containers on Azure with a single command". Containerize your application using Docker technology and execute immediately with one click. On the other hand, Azure Container Service is detailed as "Deploy and manage containers using the tools you choose". Azure Container Service optimizes the configuration of popular open source tools and technologies specifically for Azure. You get an open solution that offers portability for both your containers and your application configuration. You select the size, the number of hosts, and choice of orchestrator tools, and Container Service handles everything else.
Azure Container Instances and Azure Container Service belong to "Containers as a Service" category of the tech stack.
