    Hello, @Tejeswar !

    What is the advantage of running Azure Functions in Azure Container Apps?

    These are some of the highlights of using Azure Functions in Azure Container Apps:

    • Can be roughly half the cost for vCPU duration for a significant savings (be sure to compare current prices for your location to verify: Azure Container Apps pricing and Azure Functions pricing).
    • Removes the complexity of having to work with Kubernetes APIs.
    • Streamlined management by using your existing Kubernetes cluster.
    • Can be run in the same environment as your other microservices, APIs, websites, workflows, or any container hosted programs including being integrated with DAPR, scaled using KEDA.
    • Increases portability, isolation, and customization.
    • Deployed using AzCLI/Portal/code-to-cloud DevOps tooling into the same compute environment.
