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.
