Justin Luk joins Scott Hanselman to discuss AKS preview features and enabling new functionality like Virtual Machine Scale Set node pools and Availability Zones. Availability Zones (AZ) is a high availability offering from Azure that protects applications and data from datacenter failures. By using AZ with Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), you will get higher reliability and resiliency for your applications running on Kubernetes.    

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 , […]

See just how easy it is to deploy a service mesh to your AKS cluster. William Morgan, maintainer of the open source service mesh Linkerd, joins Scott Hanselman to demonstrate just how easy it is to deploy Linkerd. Together they explore how to debug a live microservices application using the service mesh, without changing any code.

Azure IoT Edge now features support for running natively on the Kubernetes orchestrator. This video goes into how the integration works and caps off with a demo showing what the experience is like for deploying a workload on an on-premise Kubernetes cluster.  Give this a spin yourself on your own Kubernetes cluster (or create one using Azure Kubernetes Service) using the Kubernetes on Edge How-to guide.

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.
