Got your point!
Yes, for your scenario, it sound better to run it in some sort of downscaled VM environment.
Azure Container Instance is also billed for each second it runs, so if you need something that lays around and process data constantly, it would get rather costly compared with the cheapest VMs. https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/container-instances/
A quick guestimate would look like this for 1 CPU and 1 GB RAM (24hrs)
VM (B1S): $0.312
Edit: Tried to fix some formating
