Azure Container Instances now includes support for running containerized tasks. Here are the updates for February 2018: * DNS name labels for containers: Configure a reliable endpoint for each container by placing a DNS name label through the [REST API]( or [Azure CLI 2.0]( > `az container create --resource-group MyResourceGroup --name myalpine --image alpine:latest --ports 80 443 --dns-name-label contoso` * [Streaming container logs with Azure CLI 2.0]( Read your container state and log output by attaching to your container from Azure CLI 2.0. > `az container attach --resource-group MyResourceGroup --name myalpine` * [Container restart policies]( Designate containers to always restart, restart only on failure, or never restart. * Various volume types for mounting: Mount [Azure Files](, [gitRepo](, [emptyDir](, and [secret]( volumes. * Guidance on container failures: Error messages provided for container instance failures have been refined and extended to improve self-debugging. * [Support for the Southeast Asia region]( Deploy container instances from Southeast Asia in addition to East US, West US, and West Europe.
