Here’s a great brief introduction to basic Kubernetes concepts.

With docker you were able to run a single instance of an application using the docker run command. Which is great! Running an application has never been so easy before.

With Kubernetes, using the Kubernetes CLI known as Kubectl you can run a 1000 instance of the same application with a single command. Kubernetes can scale it up to 2000 with another command. 

A quick introduction on how to think about setting up alerting and monitoring for applications in Kubernetes.

What do you get out of the box, how can you integrate more advanced metrics and add your own custom monitoring and alerting to reliably operate your application.

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.
