  1. Support NSG for public ACI instances

    Network Security Groups should be usable with ACI public IPs to enable easy IP whitelisting.

  2. Support setting of hostname

    Currently it seems the hostname of containers are assigned by the kubernetes host to names like wk-caas-53e0cdf0aabd43e791229d05ada1f6f0-99fa4897040e383fe3be53

    It would be helpful if we could set these hostnames at container creation time, rather then using the default name.

  3. ACI with static private addresses

    There is a need for ACI instances to be created with static private addresses. This should survive restarts.

  5. Enable AppGw to route to containers, even if the container IP address changes automatically

    We have an application gateway configured to route traffic to a container 's private IP address as configured in the AppGW's backend pool. The problem is: the IP address of the container continues to change so we can't rely on this configuration.

    We need a solution where the AppGw always routes to the container, even if the IP address changes.

  6. Enable private link to work with ACI backend / platform which pulls images from ACR

    Currently private link only work between the container and Azure resources like Key vaults, but it won't work when pulling images from ACR thus ACR will have to enable public network access to the internet without having the capability to whitelist the IP of the ACI backend / platform which responsible pulling the images. This is a big drawback as it is a security concern to most companies.

  7. Map azure file share to an individual file

    Right now Azure file share mounts to a directory. If possible can we mount azure file share to a file?

  8. status

    Add container status to the metric.
    When checking or exporting metrics for container instance, I would like to know the status of the container (running, pending, fail ...) as one of the dimension.

  9. Docker ACI Integration docker ps to show real containerID

    Unfortunately the Docker ACI integration when using docker ps has a shortcoming, namely that under column container id it only shows the ACI container group name and not the individual containers inside the group with its individual IDs. While it is possible to reveal the underlying containerID using other means, e.g. reading the Linux controller group (cat /proc/self/cgroup ) it would be more convenient if this info was listed using docker ps. The containerID is of interest if forwarding the ACI logs to Log Analytics where the containerID is presented in one column which helps then to correlate the log…

  10. windows conteiner vnet

    Windows Container deployed to a vnet would be a very nice feature. The limitation currently is, that windows containers can not be deployed to a vnet and can only get a public ip or no networking.
    Security critical services running on windows containers for internal usage only would be helpful.

  12. Support for managed identity in a container deployed to a virtual network.

    Are there any plans to remove the limitation of using managed identity with VNET integration?
    We are looking for a way to host a single / small number of containers with VNET integration, so it can communicate with other resources on that VNET via private endnpoints.

  13. Infiniband Support for GPU Containers

    Currently GPU containers run on N-series VMs, which are connected through Infiniband. However, is is curently not possible to setup Infiniband on containers (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/436189/trying-to-use-infiniband-in-aci.html). It would be great if we could use Infiniband directly or even through IPoIB.

    Reason: Benefit from higher throughput, lower latency communication for workloads like distributed ML.

  14. Add support for connecting ACI in different vnet with each other

    I am trying to call an ACI (AC1) in a vnet (vnet1) from an ACI (ACI2) in another vnet (vnet2) without success. The vnet1 and vnet2 have overlapping ip ranges and I cannot change these.

    Add support for either private link for ACI:s, or guides (if it is already possible to do this) howto setup this scenario

  16. Register Container Network Profile IP in Azure Private DNS zones

    Whenever a Container is restarted it's IP can change, would be great if it could be linked to an Azure Private DNS Zone when using container instances into an Azure virtual network.

  18. Azure Files for Windows containers

    As a Windows programmer, I'd like to benefit from Azure, too. This includes Azure Files for Windows containers.

    Windows is a core Microsoft product. It should be fully supported by Microsoft or be dropped from the product line.

  19. Increasing limits of Container Instance service in China East 2 region

    There is currently a limit in China East 2 region of at most 2 CPU cores and 8 GB of memory per ACI container.

    Could these limits be increased to 4 CPU core and 14 GB of memory?

  20. Docker-compose compatibility with deploying ACI to a subnet on a virtual network

    Using docker-compose to create an ACI is nice but lacks the ability to deploy to to a virtual network. This is needed for most production cases.
