In this episode, Azure CTO Mark Russinovich joins Scott Hanselman to show how you can use Azure Container Instances (ACI) to host a containerized application. Mark deploys an image processing container in three ways: as a standalone ACI container, as part of a Logic Apps workflow, and as the backend of a web app.

ACI provides general-purpose, serverless containers-as-a-service that can be used with Logic Apps, App Service, Azure Kubernetes Service, Azure Functions, and other platforms in Azure to serve dev, test, and production workloads. Use ACI for deploying build/test containers, host backend APIs, or as part of a workflow.
