    @Tay Jd

    AKS is a managed service more of a PaaS. However, the underlying Infra is exposed to CX. But, it is not recommended to manipulation of the IaaS resources.

    Azure Container service was more of a Iaas offering which was supporting container orchestration. However, ACS is retired now (ref: doc).

    In addition to @vipullag-MSFT , AKS is just kind of PaaS wrapper over underlying VM scale-set used for the cluster. You just pay for the worker nodes that are part of the VM scale-set, which technically a IaaS. the managers are wrapper PaaS service, which Azure takes care.
