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.

Navigating the Azure portal

We are going to jump straight in by creating our Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). By doing so, we are also going to familiarize ourselves with the Azure portal. Please note that we are going to ask you to blindly click here and there. We will explain the different concepts later in the appropriate context or as side notes. For now, trust us, we are engineers (at least we used to be).

Creating your first AKS

On the top center where the search icon is, type this:


You will see Kubernetes services under SERVICES. Click on it:

You have to add a new Resource Group. Type handsonaks and myfirstakscluster for the cluster name:

Use the previous names for Resource Group and Cluster Name. We will be using...
