Azure Container Service vs BrowserStack: What are the differences?

Azure Container Service: Deploy and manage containers using the tools you choose. Azure Container Service optimizes the configuration of popular open source tools and technologies specifically for Azure. You get an open solution that offers portability for both your containers and your application configuration. You select the size, the number of hosts, and choice of orchestrator tools, and Container Service handles everything else; BrowserStack: Instant access to a lab of 1000+ real mobile and desktop browsers for testing. Live, Web-Based Browser Testing Instant access to all real mobile and desktop browsers. Say goodbye to your lab of devices and virtual machines.

Azure Container Service and BrowserStack are primarily classified as "Containers as a Service" and "Browser Testing" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Azure Container Service are:

  • Create a container hosting solution optimized for Azure
  • Scale and orchestrate applications using Apache Mesos or Docker Swarm
  • Use popular open source, client-side tooling

On the other hand, BrowserStack provides the following key features:

  • Real Device Cloud. Test on a range of physical Android and iOS mobile devices and tablets for the most accurate results
  • 1100+ desktop browsers. Latest versions of IE, Edge, Safari, Chrome, Firefox and more on a range of Windows and OS X platforms on a robust cloud infrastructure
  • Test dev environments. Our Local Testing feature allows you to test development and internal websites seamlessly, without setup or configuration

"Easy to setup, very agnostic" is the top reason why over 3 developers like Azure Container Service, while over 121 developers mention "Multiple browsers" as the leading cause for choosing BrowserStack.

According to the StackShare community, BrowserStack has a broader approval, being mentioned in 572 company stacks & 230 developers stacks; compared to Azure Container Service, which is listed in 8 company stacks and 7 developer stacks.

      #OpenSource

      I am working on #OpenSource file uploader. The uploader is the widget that other developers embed in their apps. It should work well in different browsers and on different devices. BrowserStack and Sauce Labs help to achieve that. I can test the uploader in many varieties of browsers+OS only used my browser without virtual machines.

      It's incredible how much this service has increased my productivity when it comes to testing new features in multiple browsers. And not only multiple browsers, multiple operating systems as well! And really LOVE that you can run it locally.

      We use BrowserStack to run end to end tests with Selenium on our dashboard. It runs automatically before every deployment and cancels it if anything is out of place.
