Azure Container Service helps you to use Docker images and Linux containers in a production environment, providing management and orchestration at scale while supporting the same tools and technologies for building and deployment that you already use for your containerized applications.
You simply select the size and number of hosts, choice of orchestrator, and then Container Service manages the details. Container Service offers you a choice of tools for container orchestration and scale operations: you can choose Docker Swarm and Compose for a native container experience, or Apache Mesos and popular Mesos frameworks for flexible deployment and management of large production workloads.
For more details see Container Service webpage
