What is Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)?

Definition: Kubernetes is a Greek name whose meaning is captain or governor. Kubernetes is an Azure service that is used to deploy containerized applications easily.

  • Azure Kubernetes Service = AKS
  • Kubernetes sometimes spelled K8s.
  • Azure Kubernetes is a PAAS (Platform As A Service) offering of azure.
  • AKS offers serverless, Continuous integration, continuous delivery (CI/CD) service, and enterprise-level security and governance.
  • AKS is an open-source system, which means anyone can submit the fixes.
  • AKS will deploy more images of containers when needed.
  • Autoscaling: Automatic monitoring of application leads to determining when to scale the number of containers used.
  • For security and management, AKS lets you integrate with Azure Active Directory. After integrating with Azure AD,
    • You can use Kubernetes role-based access control.
    • You can monitor the health of your cluster and resources.

What is Azure Container Registry (ACR)?

  • ACR keeps track of all the current valid container images.
  • ACR also manages files and all the artifacts for the containers.
  • When Azure Container Instance (ACI) or Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) needs to create a new container, the image comes from Azure Container Registry (ACR).
  • You can use Azure identity and security features to make sure azure container images are safe.

Why to use Kubernetes Service?

  • Kubernetes allows you to replicate architectures that involve containers. You can reuse the same setup again and again, once you are confirmed that it works.
  • You don’t need to worry about infrastructure and hardware. Along with Kubernetes, you also get standard services like identity and access management, elastic provisioning.
  • Use Azure Kubernetes service with supported Azure regions and on-premises installations using Azure stack.
