Back to Basics: Azure Kubernetes Service 

Azure Kubernetes

We cannot stop the inevitable growth of applications across multiple servers. But there is a way to manage the data in a better way. 

Data can be processed even more efficiently and in a scalable way in containers managed by Kubernetes offering an open-source API that regulates how and where those containers will execute in order to handle this complexity. 

What is Kubernetes? 

Based on the virtual machines’ available resources and the resource needs of each container, Kubernetes schedules containers to execute on those virtual machines in clusters. The basic operational unit of Kubernetes, known as pods, are collections of containers that scale to the required state. These pods are responsible for processing your data. 

Kubernetes incorporates load balancing, controls service discovery, keeps track of resource allocation, and scales based on compute use. Additionally, it assesses the condition of each resource and gives programs the ability to self-heal by replicating containers or restarting them automatically. 

How does Kubernetes work with Azure? 

Microsoft Azure is a well-known cloud platform for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to major corporations, and Kubernetes is a cutting-edge strategy that is quickly replacing traditional management practices for cloud-native apps in a production setting. 

Both solutions have been combined into the Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), enabling users to rapidly and easily build fully-managed Kubernetes clusters.  

Additional platforms and tools, i.e. Azure DevOps, Helm, and others allow quick and automatic deployment of AKS environment, configuration versioning storage, or container re-creation. 

AKS allows resource provisioning, scaling, and upgrading according to requirement or demand without any downtime in the Kubernetes cluster.  

When using Azure’s Kubernetes architecture to build modern apps, AKS is unquestionably the best platform to use.  

Azure Container Instances are a good option for deploying containers on the public cloud. The burden of deploying and running apps on the Kubernetes architecture is lessened thanks to Azure Container Instances.

Once the above questions have been answered, a disaster recovery and backup readiness index can be calculated based on the following scale: 

  • Level 1: Inadequate – The organization has significant gaps in its disaster recovery and backup posture.  
  • Level 2: Developing – The organization has some disaster recovery and backup processes in place, but significant improvements are needed.  
  • Level 3: Mature – The organization has a mature disaster recovery and backup posture, but there is room for improvement.  
  • Level 4: Robust – The organization has a strong disaster recovery and backup posture and is well-prepared to address potential disruptions.  
  • Level 5: Exceptional – The organization has a comprehensive and mature approach to disaster recovery and backup. 

The disaster recovery and backup readiness index can be calculated by assigning a score of 1-5 to each question based on the level of readiness demonstrated. The scores are then averaged across all questions in each category to determine the readiness level for that category. The overall disaster recovery and backup readiness index is calculated by averaging the readiness levels across all categories. 

Level 1: Basic
You have minimal cybersecurity processes in place and face a high risk of cyberattacks. Immediate attention and significant improvements are necessary to enhance your security posture.

Level 2: Developing
You have some cybersecurity processes in place but require substantial improvements to reach a mature state. You should focus on strengthening your policies, procedures, and security controls.

Level 3: Mature
You have a solid cybersecurity posture, but there is still room for improvement. You should continue enhancing your processes, monitoring capabilities, and incident response practices.

Level 4: Advanced
You have a strong cybersecurity posture and are well-prepared to address potential threats. However, you should remain proactive and stay abreast of emerging threats and technologies to maintain your advanced level of security.

Level 5: Leading
You have a comprehensive and mature approach to cybersecurity. You are a leader in cybersecurity best practices and continually innovate to stay ahead of evolving threats.
