  2. AKS Best Practices – Cluster Operator Multi-Tenancy Authentication and Authorization

    • Azure AD • Kubernetes RBAC • Azure RBAC • Pod Identities Cluster Isolation • Multi-tenancy and logical separation using namespaces Basic scheduler • Resource Quotas • Pod Disruption Budget Advanced scheduler • Taints & Tolerations • Node selectors and affinity • Inter-pod affinity and anti-affinity
  3. AKS Best Practices Security • Cluster Security & Upgrades •

    Secure API Server • Limit container access • Manage upgrades & node reboots • Container Image Management • Secure images and runtimes • Automate builds on base image updates • Pod Security • Secure access to resources • Limit Credentials exposure • Use Pod Identities and Digital Key Vaults Network & Storage • Network Connectivity • Different network models using ingress and WAF • Secure node SSH access • Storage & Backup • Appropriate storage type & node size • Dynamically provision volumes • Data Backups Developer • Manage resources • Resource Requests & Limits • Pod Security • Secure access to resources • Limit credentials exposure • Use Pod Identities & Digital Vaults
  4. Summary • Modern applications are loosely coupled and highly portable

    • AKS provides native integrations to Dapr and KEDA • KEDA helps to auto scale on metrics external to Kubernetes • Dapr tries to simplify the Microservices development and deployment • Dapr Components help to extract underlying functionality and provides abstractions • Best practices related to AKS • Make app portable to run in serverless as well as managed cloud services
