AKS workshop | Deepdive Azure Kubernetes Services
More velocity, efficiency, and agility
What are the benefits of using AKS?
There are many reasons why people come to use containers and container APIs like Kubernetes, but we believe they can all be traced back to one of these benefits:
- Velocity, the speed with which you can develop and deploy new components and features, or the speed with which you can respond to innovations developed by others.
- Scaling (of both software and teams (Microservices)), Kubernetes achieves scalability by favouring decoupled architectures. In a decoupled architecture, each component is separated from other components by defined APIs and service load balancers.
- Hybrid cloud. Abstracting your infrastructure, building on top of Kubernetes’s application-oriented abstractions ensures that the effort you put into building, deploying, and managing your application is truly portable across a wide variety of environments.
- Efficiency, developers no longer think in terms of machines, their applications can be co-located on the same machines without impacting the applications themselves. This means that tasks from multiple users can be packed tightly onto fewer machines.
Who is this workshop for?
Whether you are new to distributed systems or have been deploying cloud-native systems for years, containers and Kubernetes can help you achieve new levels of velocity, agility, reliability, and efficiency. Familiarity with concepts like load balancers and network storage will be useful, though not required. Likewise, experience with Linux, Linux containers, and Docker, though not essential, will help you make the most of this workshop. If you prefer to gain some knowledge first on these topics, please attend the Azure Fundamentals workshop.
