Kubernetes (K8s) has long been established as an orchestration platform for a container-based system landscape. However, setting up and administering a cluster can be quite time-consuming. This session is an introductory overview of how Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) can support these tasks and how the interaction between K8s resources and Azure resources works. I will show where AKS can simplify cluster management, such as scaling or upgrading and how the K8s resources are mapped to Azure resources for storage mounting or load balancing. AKS is not another K8s (or container orchestrations system), its based on K8s and helps to combine the worlds of Azure and K8s - running in the Azure Cloud.
