Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

Highly available, secure and fully managed Kubernetes service

Ship faster, operate with ease and scale confidently

The fully managed Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) makes deploying and managing containerised applications easy. It offers serverless Kubernetes, an integrated continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) experience, and enterprise-grade security and governance. Unite your development and operations teams on a single platform to rapidly build, deliver and scale applications with confidence.

Elastic provisioning of additional capacity without the need to manage the infrastructure. Add event-driven auto-scaling and triggers through KEDA

Faster end-to-end development experience with Azure Dev Spaces including integration with Visual Studio Code Kubernetes tools, Azure DevOps and Azure Monitor

Advanced identity and access management using Azure Active Directory, and dynamic rules enforcement across multiple clusters with Azure Policy

Available in more regions than any other cloud providers

Accelerate containerised application development

Easily define, deploy, debug and upgrade even the most complex Kubernetes applications, and automatically containerise your applications. Develop and test microservices-based applications without mocking up dependencies using Dev Spaces.

Add a full CI/CD pipeline to your AKS clusters with automated routine tasks, and set up a Canary deployment strategy in just a few clicks. Detect failures early and optimise your pipelines with deep traceability into your deployments.

Gain visibility into your environment with control-plane telemetry, log aggregation and container health, accessible in the Azure portal and automatically configured for AKS clusters.

Get DevOps fundamentals

Manage Kubernetes with ease

Easily provision clusters using the CLI or infrastructure-as-code tools such as Terraform. Minimise infrastructure maintenance using automated upgrades, repair, monitoring and scaling.

Elastically provision additional compute capacity in serverless Kubernetes in seconds without worrying about managing the infrastructure.

Achieve higher availability and protect applications from data centre failures using redundancies across availability zones.

Learn about Serverless Kubernetes

Run any workload in the cloud, at the edge or as a hybrid

Orchestrate any type of workload running in the environment of your choice. Whether you want to move .NET applications to Windows Server containers, modernise Java applications in Linux containers or run microservices applications in the public cloud, at the edge or in hybrid environments, Azure has the solution for you.

Learn about the Kubernetes core concepts and apply best practices in production.

Common uses for Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

Use Kubernetes to migrate your existing application to the cloud, build a complex application that uses machine learning or take advantage of the agility offered by a microservices architecture.

    Easily migrate existing application to container(s) and run within the Azure managed Kubernetes service (AKS). Control access via integration with Azure Active Directory and access SLA-backed Azure Services such as Azure Database for MySQL using OSBA (Open Service Broker for Azure) for your data needs.


    1. 1 User converts existing application to container(s) & publishes container image(s)to the Azure Container Registry
    2. 2 Using Azure Portal or command line, user deploys containers to AKS cluster
    3. 3 Azure Active Directory is used to control access to AKS resources
    4. 4 Easily access SLA-backed Azure Services such as Azure Database for MySQL using OSBA (Open Service Broker for Azure)
    5. 5 Optionally, AKS can be deployed with a VNET virtual network

    Use AKS to simplify the deployment and management of microservices based architecture. AKS streamlines horizontal scaling, self-healing, load balancing, secret management.


    1. 1 Developer uses IDE such as Visual Studio to commit changes to GitHub
    2. 2 GitHub triggers a new build on Azure DevOps
    3. 3 Azure DevOps packages microservices as containers and pushes them to the Azure Container Registry
    4. 4 Containers are deployed to AKS cluster
    5. 5 Users access services via apps and website
    6. 6 Azure Active Directory is used to secure access to the resources
    7. 7 Microservices use databases to store and retrieve information
    8. 8 Administrator accesses via a separate admin portal
  • DevOps seguro para AKSDevOps y Kubernetes funcionan mejor juntos. Implementar DevOps seguro con Kubernetes en Azure, le permite alcanzar el equilibrio entre velocidad y seguridad, y proporcionar códigos más rápido a gran escala. Establezca protecciones en torno a los procesos de desarrollo mediante CI/CD con controles dinámicos de directivas y acelere el bucle de comentarios con una supervisión constante. Utilice Azure Pipelines para ofrecer resultados rápido mientras asegura el cumplimiento de directivas críticas con Azure Policy. Azure brinda observabilidad en tiempo real de sus canalizaciones de versión y compilación, además de la capacidad de aplicar fácilmente auditorías de cumplimiento y reconfiguraciones.123456789

    DevOps and Kubernetes are better together. Implementing secure DevOps together with Kubernetes on Azure, you can achieve the balance between speed and security and deliver code faster at scale. Put guardrails around the development processes using CI/CD with dynamic policy controls and accelerate feedback loop with constant monitoring. Use Azure Pipelines to deliver fast while ensuring enforcement of critical policies with Azure Policy. Azure provides real-time observability for your build and release pipelines, and the ability to apply compliance audit and reconfigurations easily.


    1. 1 Developers rapidly iterate, test and debug different parts of an application together in the same Kubernetes cluster
    2. 2 Code is merged into a GitHub repository, after which automated builds and tests are run by Azure pipelines
    3. 3 Container image is registered in Azure Container Registry
    4. 4 Kubernetes clusters are provisioned using tools such as Terraform; Helm charts, installed by Terraform, define the desired state of app resources and configurations
    5. 5 Operators enforce policies to govern deployments to the AKS cluster
    6. 6 Release pipeline automatically executes predefined deployment strategy with each code change
    7. 7 Policy enforcement and auditing is added to CI/CD pipeline using Azure Policy
    8. 8 App telemetry, container health monitoring and real-time log analytics are obtained using Azure Monitor
    9. 9 Insights used to address issues and fed into next sprint plans
  • Escale fácilmente mediante AKS y ACIEscale fácilmente mediante AKS y ACI443321
    1. Overview
    2. Flow


    Use the AKS virtual node to provision pods inside ACI that start in seconds. This enables AKS to run with just enough capacity for your average workload. As you run out of capacity in your AKS cluster, scale out additional pods in ACI without any additional servers to manage.


    1. 1 User registers container in Azure Container Registry
    2. 2 Container images are pulled from the Azure Container Registry
    3. 3 AKS virtual node, a Virtual Kubelet implementation, provisions pods inside ACI from AKS when traffic comes in spikes.
    4. 4 AKS and ACI containers write to shared data store
