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.
Table of Contents (16 chapters)
Free Chapter
Section 1: The Basics
Section 2: Deploying on AKS
Section 3: Leveraging Advanced Azure PaaS Services in Combination with AKS


By the end of this chapter, we are now able to access and navigate the Azure portal to perform all the functions required to launch AKS and also to use the free trial on Azure to your advantage while learning the ins and outs of AKS and other Azure services. We launched our own AKS cluster with the ability to customize configurations if required using Azure Portal. We also learned to use Azure Cloud Shell without installing anything on your computer. This is important for all the upcoming sections, where you will be doing a lot more than launching simple applications. Finally, we launched a publicly accessible service that works! The skeleton of this application is the same for the complex applications that you will be launching in the next sections.
