Azure AKS

Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) makes it simpleto deploy a managed Kubernetes cluster in Azure. AKS reduces the complexity andoperational overhead of managing Kubernetes by offloading much of thatresponsibility to Azure. As a hosted Kubernetes service Azure handles criticaltasks like health monitoring and maintenance for you.

Deploy and manage containerised applications more easily with a fully managed Kubernetes service. Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) offers serverless Kubernetes, an integrated continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) experience and enterprise-grade security and governance. Unite your development and operations teams on a single platform to rapidly build, deliver and scale applications with confidence.

Elastic provisioning of capacity without the need to manage the infrastructure and with the ability to add event-driven auto scaling and triggers through KEDA

Faster end-to-end development experience with Azure Dev Spaces including integration with Visual Studio Code Kubernetes tools, Azure DevOps and Azure Monitor

Advanced identity and access management using Azure Active Directory and dynamic rules enforcement across multiple clusters with Azure Policy

Available in more regions than any other cloud provider

Accelerate containerised application development:

Easily define, deploy, debug and upgrade even the most complex Kubernetes applications and automatically containerised your applications. Develop and test microservices-based applications without mocking up dependencies using Dev Spaces.

Add a full CI/CD pipeline to your AKS clusters with automated routine tasks and set up a canary deployment strategy in just a few clicks. Detect failures early and optimise your pipelines with deep traceability into your deployments.

Gain visibility into your environment with control-plane telemetry, log aggregation and container health, accessible in the Azure portal and automatically configured for AKS clusters.
