We’re pleased to announce the following services which are now available in the UK!
Azure Container Service – Azure Container Service is the fastest way to realize the benefits of running containers in production. It uses customers’ preferred choice of open source technology, tools, and skills, combined with the confidence of solid support and a thriving community ecosystem. Simplified configurations of proven open source container orchestration technology, optimized to run in the Azure cloud, are provided. In just a few clicks, customers can deploy in production container-based applications, and on a framework designed to help manage the complexity of containers deployed at scale. Unlike other container services, Azure Container Service is built on 100% open source software and offer a choice between open source orchestrators Kubernetes, DC/OS, or Docker Swarm with Swarm mode.
The UK region is the first Azure region featuring Docker Swarm mode instead of legacy Swarm.
