While there are several ways to host container workloads in Azure, Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) provides the easiest way to deploy Kubernetes for teams needing a full orchestration solution. By Jim Counts.
AKS seems to gain new features every week. Depending on your needs deploying a repeatable, consistent AKS configuration can be challenging. Infrastructure-as-Code tools like Terraform bring this complexity under control (source control, that is!) Let’s take a look at spinning up an AKS cluster using Terraform.

- Azure Monitor for Containers
- Automatic AKS version upgrades
- Separate node pools for user and system workloads
- A system assigned managed cluster identity
- Autoscaling node pools
- Availability Zone Configuration
- Azure Policy for Kubernetes
This is an extensive guide to AKS on Azure with loads of code examples and a detailed explanation of each step. Nicely done![Read More]
