Hands-On Kubernetes on Azure

By: Shivakumar Gopalakrishnan, Gunther Lenz

Overview of this book

Microsoft is now one of the most significant contributors to Kubernetes open source projects. Kubernetes helps to create, configure, and manage a cluster of virtual machines that are preconfigured to run containerized applications. This book will be your guide to performing successful container orchestration and deployment of Kubernetes clusters on Azure. You will get started by learning how to deploy and manage highly scalable applications, along with understanding how to set up a production-ready Kubernetes cluster on Azure. As you advance, you will learn how to reduce the complexity and operational overheads of managing a Kubernetes cluster on Azure. By the end of this book, you will not only be capable of deploying and managing Kubernetes clusters on Azure with ease, but also have the knowledge of best practices for working with advanced AKS concepts for complex systems.

Reviewing audit logs

When you run the database on the Kubernetes cluster, it is very difficult to get audit logs should something goes wrong. You need a robust way of dynamically setting the audit level depending on the scenario. You also have to ensure that the logs are shipped outside the cluster. Unless you have RBAC enabled, and that the RBAC logs are correlated, it is difficult to determine whether anyone has made changes to the database server settings.

A managed Azure Database solves the preceding issues by providing a robust auditing mechanism via the Azure Portal.

Azure Database audits

A very powerful tool for troubleshooting is the Azure Database audit logs. You can review the basic logs by looking at the Activity...
