ECIs

  • To create an Elastic Container Instance (ECI), make sure that your Alibaba Cloud account has a balance of at least CNY 100 and has passed real-name verification.
  • ECI currently only supports Linux-based containers. We are working on support for Windows-based containers.
  • Currently, ECIs can only be deployed in Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs).
