Think serverless is just for functions? Think again!

Brendan Burns joins Donovan Brown to look at how serverless containers can provide a cloud-native container experience without the worry of a server or operating system.

They also look at how this integrates with the Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS).

Container registries are repositories for storing container images, but who should use them?

Which one should we choose and why are they important for cloud native applications?

Steve Lasker sits with us in Building 99 today and talks about registries and more specifically Azure Container Registry and the practices around using them for your applications.

Keiko Harada joins Scott Hanselman to show how to use Prometheus to monitor containers in Azure Monitor.

Prometheus is a popular open source metric monitoring solution and is a part of Cloud Native Compute Foundation.

Customers who like the extensive metrics which Prometheus provides on Kubernetes also like how easy it is to use Azure Monitor for containers which provides fully managed, out of the box monitoring for Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) clusters.

In this episode, learn how the Anomaly Detection service comes to your on-premises systems via containers.

By deploying the same API service close to your data in containers, now you don’t have to worry about situations when you have to keep the data on-premises to follow regulation, or to deal with network latency, or just want to reuse the same application powered-by Anomaly Detector across both the cloud and on-premise.

IoT is a technology paradigm that involves the use of internet connected devices to publish data often in conjunction with real-time data processing, machine learning, and/or storage services. Development of these systems can be enhanced through application of modern DevOps principles which include tasks like automation, monitoring, and all steps of the software engineering process from development, testing, quality assurance, and release. This video examines these concepts as they relate to IoT Edge Solutions using Azure DevOps, Application Insights, Azure Container Registries, containerized iot edge devices and Azure Kubernetes Service to create an end-to-end pipeline which deploys, smoke tests, and allows for scalable integration testing using replica sets in k8s.

We are quickly getting to the point that any AI engineer worth their salt needs to have a good grip on the fundamentals of kubernetes.  It’s not just for the DevOps crowd anymore.

Official kubernetes (k8s) website says, Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It groups containers that make up an application into logical units for easy management and discovery. Kubernetes builds upon 15 years of experience of running production workloads at Google , […]

After pondering some of the implications of Siraj Raval’s predictions for AI in 2019, it’s time to move learning containers to the top of my learning queue.

In this video, Damian interviews Cloud Advocate Jay Gordon at Microsoft Ignite in Berlin. Containers are still new for a lot of people and with the huge list of buzzwords, it’s hard to know where to get started. Jay shows how easy it is to get started running your first container in Azure, right from scratch.
