We’re currently an Azure user as well as using NewRelic Synthetics to monitor locations from around the world.
Whilst the default location offerings are ok, we’d like to be more granular, for example being able to monitor from the UAE.
Azure Container Instances would seem like an idea mechanism in order to fire up a minion in any one of the Azure locations. Unfortunately the requirements to fire up child containers and not being supported with orchestration engines would preclude this.
Being able to run minions within orchestration engines and services like ACI would be a great capability to have.
New Relic Edit

We take feature ideas seriously and our product managers review every one when plotting their roadmaps. However, there is no guarantee this feature will be implemented. This post ensures the idea is put on the table and discussed though. So please vote and share your extra details with our team.
