  1. Update New-AzContainerGroup to allow multiple containers in ACI

    In AZ CLI you can specify a yaml file containing multiple images when deploying an Azure Container Instance.

    This functionality should be made available using Azure Powershell, as it would be useful for writing lightweight deployment scripts in Azure Functions or even Automation. Currently New-AzContainerGroup can only be used to create single-container ACI resources.

  2. Add ACI containers to the list of allowed trusted Microsoft service.

    When certain resources are deployed (Azure key Vault as an example), we often select the option to allow connections from private Endpoints or selected networks only. Along with the option to allow "Allow trusted Microsoft services to bypass this firewall?".

    However, these trusted services do not include our deployed ACI containers.

    Instead, we have to identify the IP address for the container and add it as an exception, this complicates deployment. A feature to be able to add our ACI containers to connect as an allowed resource would simplify deployment.

    One other option for us could be to deploy ACI…

  3. Support starting containers based on Azure Queues

    Our software spools up containers to process data from Azure Queue. It would be useful if containers could automatically be spooled up based on how many items are in an Azure Queue (in our case 1 container for 1 queue item). At the moment we are using a Function to manage this process but something built in to ACI would be great.

  4. support multiple protocols with same port for ACI

    Currently, we cannot expose same port for multiple protocols, such as expose port 8838 with TCP and UDP protocols together.
    Could you add this feature asap?

  5. Support Availability Zones for Azure Container Instance

    The idea is that if we want to use Azure Container Instance (ACI) in our solution which support HA redundancy, currently it's not possible because there's no availability zone support. Spawning two container instances in same region could result in single point of failure if the region is down. Spawning in two different regions may work but it's definitely a concern on the pricing.

  6. Container Groups should have a MAX value for number of retries on failures

    Azure Container Instances does not have maximum retry count for failures, Azure Function and others have retry functionality that retries when failed. The ask is to have Container Groups to have maximum retry count for failures.

  7. ACI Container Groups should have configurable TTL that starts after all containers reach a terminal state.

    Once the Azure Container Instances reach final/terminated state, they have to be deleted or cleaned manually. The ask is to have a configuration setting to remove the container group automatically after all the instances in the group reach final or terminated state.

  8. Implement ACI in regions Switzerland North and Switzerland West

    We are moving medical data around in Switzerland, the data constitutes PII sensitive data, and in accordance with our regulators, the data must reside in jurisdiction Switzerland. It is a legal requirement for us. We would like to use the SFTP on Azure service which is based on ACI.

  9. Support Managed Disks

    The title describes feature.
    Currently ACI is not suitable for hosting databases, but if you give us ability to mount Managed Disks it would allow us to hust hunderds of databases.
    I saw this post https://medium.com/@seanmckenna_47871/aci-pm-here-d59cde58890a and it says "We intend to eventually support other volume types, such as Azure Managed Disks.". Do you still have plans to support Managed Disks?

  10. Customize Disk Performance for Container Instances

    Azure Container Instances is a great quick way to deploy containers. But unfortunately, the disk speed is very slow, around 30MB/s and when attaching a Azure File Storage it is around 100MB/s. Meanwhile on a dedicated SSD VM it does over 400MB/s.

    Our container that we need to deploy is high temporary IO which requires faster disks. Otherwise our workload will take 7 times slower with Container Instances than normal Kubernetes.

    Would be nice to pass a command --disk ssd to the cli to support this.

  11. Preserve END Client IP address to Azure Container Instances

    I've been using Azure Container Instances to develop different short term web projects. I love the idea of being able to script the creation of a Container with mounted storage and to have all the control over the NGINX config in a persistent storage mount. I've noticed that you cannot get the IP address of the requesting system in this configuration. The only thing that shows up in the logs is a local IP of what I assume to be the container parent. It would be great if there was some forwarding header that would pass down the IP address…

  13. Prompt Azure AD credentials while accessing container(set to private access level) using shared key.

    When the access level of the container is set to "anonymous", sharing a URL of the file would allow users to download file. But, when the
    access level is set to "private", an authorized request specifying date header is required. This requires extra steps and SAS keys expires.

    Azure storage does not currently support prompting Azure AD credentials while attempting to access URL to download. Upon successful entry of credentials, users should be able to access the file. This feature allows using the same URL(as anonymous) to download the file and security is ensured using Azure AD authentication.

  14. Allow to set sysctl key in ACI.

    Unable to use the elasticsearch image from bitnami. The container fails to start because it requires to set the kernel parameter vm.maxmapcount to at least 262144.

    This stack exchange post explains the issue as well as a solution with Kubernetes.

  15. liveness / readiness probes

    Support for liveness and readiness probes when running ACI within a V-net. This works when the ACIis run without using v-net

  16. Configure Volumes in Web UI

    Mounting persistent volumes is only possible for ACI in Cli, for multiple volumes only with resource manager templates.
    As a lot of use cases need to have persistent storage it would be great to add them in web ui as well.

  17. Azure Container Registry failure pushing Windows containers

    Building a .NET Core container based on .NET Core base image, build with Docker on Windows as a Windows container. The push fails with an 'End of File' during push, however Docker on Windows to build for Linux has no issues.

  18. ACI deploys container groups (Pods) showing Kubernetes services links on environment variables

    Azure Container Instances is showing Kubernetes services information on environment variables as default behavior. This is polluting the environmental variable space when "az container exec" command is run. Need the ability to disable ACI pods from populating environment variable space with Kubernetes services information.

  19. Enable Containers in VNETs to Have a Public IP

    Enable Containers in VNETs to Have a Public IP

    It would be useful for containers to have a public IP and also be present in a VNET, for the use case of any type of proxy device - be it web proxy or VPN, IPS.

    At present you can be entirely in VNET with no Public IP or just a container with a PIP and no access to VNET

  20. ACI instances report success when "Stopping" terminated containers

    A "Terminated" container with a "Restart" policy will accept the "Stop" command, but the container group's status remain as "Succeeded" instead of "Stopped". This causes the group to not take advantage of restart optimizations like image caching and it is not reliable to determine if the group needs to be restarted or startup. Image caching should help with custom images/layers on top of instances.
