A few months ago, Brendan Burns wrote a blog post about how his passion for containers and user interfaces would come together to enable a new integrated workflow that supports working with Azure in both graphical and command-line interfaces. He also mentions how containers offer an efficient way to create clean and consistent interfaces for users to interact with and how containers are revolutionizing compute workloads within Azure.
The experience he describes now comes to you as Azure Cloud Shell enters public preview. Cloud Shell removes workflow friction and improves productivity by enabling automatic and secure access to a preconfigured workstation built for Azure, on Azure. Cloud Shell runs entirely on containers orchestrated by Kubernetes, illustrating just one example of how container technology can revolutionize solutions built on Azure.
