Talk: Introduction to AKS & Observability with Container Insights

Ishan jain
Got an opportunity to talk on Lighthouse Roadshow Dublin edition. In the second session me and a colleague discussed how easy it is to run and monitor Kubernetes in Azure.

Disclaimer: Currently I am employed by Microsoft, but my views and thoughts are still my own. The reason I joined Microsoft was, the work Microsoft have been doing for last couple of years in Open Source Space. Today I am a advocate for Open Source representing Microsoft.

Azure provides a plethora of services for leveraging Kubernetes for you business needs. The main service, Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) will quickly (almost on-click) deploy all you need to run a Kubernetes cluster:

  • Kubernetes Controller
  • Master Nodes
    • API Server
    • Controller Manager
    • Scheduler
    • etcd
  • Worker Nodes
    • kubelet
    • kube-proxy

Apart from the Kubernetes cluster, you will also a other services to run application in Kubernetes. Preferably you would like not just to run the application, but to run them well in AKS.

The other services Azure offers for managing, running and monitoring applications in Kubernetes:

  • Azure Container Registry
  • Azure Monitor
  • Azure Security Center
  • Azure Active Directory
  • Azure DevOps
  • GitHub
  • Azure Arc
  • Azure Stack Edge
