There’s a powerful suite of Azure services dedicated to containers that aligns more with the PaaS approach. If you are not aware, containers offer a concept of isolation similar to VMs. However, Containers are typically much more lightweight than VMs and can start up quicker than VMs, often in a matter of seconds rather than minutes. Moreover, the size of a container image is typically only tens or hundreds of MBs, compared to many tens of GBs for VMs.
