I think this is a good solution with good documentation and is very straightforward to use.

Microsoft Azure Container Service is a great program and I like its usability and the time it takes to market. It is very fast to deploy as part of the DevOps and it has a good security level. So I think the usability and the pricing based on desktop cost make it a good product.
The most valuable feature is that you don't have to maintain the infrastructure. It is an out-of-the-box service that is hosted by Azure.
It is a secure way to store container images.
It has integration capability with multiple CICD tools and platforms that are available in the market.
API support is very good. You can use it to create calls to upload images, download images, and manage the repository.
Microsoft has provided a lot of documentation that is available online.
When comparing this solution with the on-premise environment Azure AKS, this solution is far superior. It has a lot of good features, such as reduced time and energy for the administration of a control plane and worker nodes because they are provided by and managed by Microsoft. We have to specify the number of nodes we are going to work on, Microsoft offers scalability, available master, and worker nodes. Additionally, you do not spend time on security, patching to fix bugs, and vulnerabilities, everything is managed by Microsoft. The cloud version provides a load balancer all configured by Microsoft, while in the on-premise version you have to implement a load balancer and you have to be involved in configuring the load balancer which is a long process.
Storage is one of the most beneficial features of cloud providers, specifically Azure because when you are working in their cloud environment, you can easily use a storage interface and a storage object that is provided by Microsoft Azure. In a local environment, you have to be involved in establishing and setting up distributed storage file systems for containers which are very difficult and complex. In a cloud environment, you are not concerned about the storage and the dashboard provides you with storage objects with high availability.
