  1. to remove 'Delete container' button from container view

    My bad experience says that it's very confusing to present 'Delete container' button (option) on the panel inside the container view.

    On attached screenshot you can see the situation.

    My user experience here is:
    - if any copy/delete/upload/move operations are presented as options (buttons) - they are going to be applied to selected items. NOT a container itself. So my eye is eager to catch any button with garbage can icon and title started with "Delete ..." - to delete selected items
    - When I'm in a container view as on screenshot and there are tons of blobs inside this…

          • Cache the downloaded container image in the Container Instances (preview)

            Each time I start a new container, the image is pulled from the repository. Even if I start 10 times the same image. I would like to have the image cached (maybe on the resource group level) so that I only get the penalty of pull once.

            • Support shorter running tasks (or allow disabling restarts on exit)

              According to the troubleshooting page: "Currently, Azure Container Instances only supports long-running services. If your container runs to completion and exits, it automatically restarts and runs again."

              Any idea when this is going to be lifted? With the pricing model, it seems like shorter lived jobs would fit perfectly with this service.

              • Linux / Docker for ASE

                We are using ASE and would like to deploy Web Apps using docker containers with linux to be able to run NodeJS applications on Azure.

                For now, with our configuration, there is a limitation => we can only deploy NodeJS applications on Windows with IIS, not docker/linux.

                We need linux too ! <3

                • Allow specifying multiple ports in AZ CLI

                  Currently if we need to expose multiple ports from the container in ACI, the only way to do so is through an ARM template. It would be great if we can enhance the AZ CLI to allow multiple ports to be specified.

                  • Container Instances Pricing

                    The Container Instances Pricing is incorrect (or confusing).

                    In the Pricing Details table the cores price is "$0.001 Core per second".
                    But in the section "Core Duration" a different value is reported:

                    Core Duration

                    Core duration is calculated from the time your container begins executing until it terminates. The price depends on the number of cores you allocate to your container instance. You are charged $0.000013 for every Core-s used. You can allocate up to four cores to each instance you deploy.

                    Additionally the examples does not seem right also. In the the first example:

                    [...]

                    Core Duration:
