Microsoft Azure now has a new method for deploying containerized applications that require orchestration without the steep learning curve of Kubernetes. Azure Container Apps allows you to write code using your preferred programming language or framework and build microservices with full DAPR (Distributed Application Runtime) support. Easily configure dynamic scaling of containers based on HTTP traffic or other events.
This service is built on top of Kubernetes but provides a simple, serverless experience that can enable dev and ops teams to quickly.
With the scale to zero option, you can configure the service so you are only paying for when your app is active in response to events and/or requests. This is a very low cost way to quickly jump into the world of containers!
