    Hi @Mohammad Moin ,

    Thank you for reaching out to us on the Microsoft Q&A forum.

    Moving from VMware VMs to container instances isn't a straightforward transition.

    Instead, you'll need to migrate each workload from the VMs into separate containers. This process depends on the specific requirements of each workload and its operating system.

    1. Identify which VM workloads are suitable for migration to containers.
    2. Utilize Docker or Kubernetes to containerize the workloads.
    3. Deploy the containers into Azure Container Instances.
    4. Establish networking, security, and data configurations for the containers.
    5. Monitor, scale, and optimize the containers as needed.
    6. Conduct performance and reliability testing on the containers.
    7. Continuously migrate workloads and refine optimization efforts.
