  1. 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.

  2. Support auto-delete of ACI when container exits normally

    When an ACI container exits normally and the restart-policy is Never you should automatically delete the ACI. Currently it sticks around with a status of Terminated.

    In my scenario I want to spin up ACI's to drain an Azure queue. When the queue is empty my ACI workers will exit and I do not want to have to go and clean up the ACI remnants afterwards. They should cleanly remove themselves as if they never existed.

    This can be an option if there are scenarios where this is undesirable.

  3. Larger memory sizes - at least 32GB - best 64GB

    Current memory sizes are too small for my usage.

    I need something to start quickly, load a 1-50GB dataset - process it in memory for half an hour and deallocate.

  4. Expand port number

    Only allowing for 5 ports to be open on a container is very limiting. Please let us open at least 8 if not no limit.

  5. Enable controlling the user for which Azure Files shares are mounted

    Shares from Azure Files are mounted in directories accessible only to the "root" user. If the container is configured to run its application as a non-root user, the entrypoint has to become a shell script that can assign appropriate permissions to the share directory. Running a script to chmod/chown every file on the share is very slow.

    It would be much easier to use shares from Azure Files if there was a way to control what user the share was mounted for.
