  1. 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?

  2. Improved discoverability for private IP addresses.

    Situation:
    Attempting to use Azure Container Instance to host a dot net core application. Application receives UDP messages from multiple IOT devices on a remove network that is connected to azure via a VPN Gateway.

    Issue:
    I could not find a reliable way for the remote network devices to discovery/refer to the container instance as the IP address changes and there is no DNS capability for the instance when using a Private IP.
    There appeared to be no suitable work arounds with load balancers, Application Gateways, or Firewalls.

    Request for improvement:
    Add a way that allows remote resources to reference…

  3. 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.

  4. Expand ACI support beyond 4 CPU core limit, our network router container needs 8 cores

    AKS already supports this requirement, please do the same for ACI.
    We don't need to use K8s for our containerized router, but do need more cores for it so it can meet its network throughput requirements.

    To add this support to ACI by Azure, cannot be a technical challenge as you already do this for AKS and also for the VM based solutions. The issue seems to be that your market analysis tells you most people don't need high powered containers, which is a fair assessment, but there are customers in your networking vendors who could use more cores being…

  5. Wait for the Managed Identity Endpoint to be available if an ACI was created with an identity

    Oftentimes, when a container is started with a Managed Identity enabled, the application in the container starts up earlier than the Managed Identity endpoint is available (I mean this endpoint: http://169.254.169.254/metadata/identity/oauth2/token).

    This causes the application to fail if shortly after startup it requests a resource it authenticates with via managed identity: a common usecase. The workarounds (sleep or manual retrying of managed identity endpoint) are rather ugly.

    Please wait for the endpoint to be available when starting a container with an identity enabled.

  7. Virtual Network para ACI no Brazil

  8. Support Https out-of-the-box

    This suggestion is to have HTTPS supported at the *.azurecontainer.io level and option to upload a certificate for custom domain so we can CNAME the azurecontainer.io if need be.

    This would be similar to what App Service is doing.

    Currently, having Https on ACI with a valid (i.e. not self-signed) certificate requires a custom domain. Using other services require a non-server-less solution (e.g. APIM consumption can't connect to VNET, same for Function Proxy, AppGw doesn't have a consumption tier, etc.).

  9. Use acr login credentials

    Azure CLI should know enough to use your ACR login when you run a container instance. The az acr login command authenticates you to a registry. az container create should be able to use those credentials.

  10. 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.

  11. Support ASG for Containers (ACI)

    Would it be possible to support ASG tags on ACI containers? This could be very useful when setting up a NSG on the subnet that the containers are attached to when using a private VNET.

  12. 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…

  15. Docs gap to find where to monitor ACI deploy status

    Update documentation on Azure Container Instances to provide guidance on how to monitor ACI deployment status via Azure Portal and where the users can find them in Portal.

  16. 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.

  17. 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?

  18. Add support for FTP server in passive mode

    Currently the ACI ingress does not support FTP server in passive mode. It would be very nice to have support for this in ACI to run small services like FTP directly in a container instance. Also support for a larger port range than the 10 ports currently supported.

  19. 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?

  20. 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…
