Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) virtual node is in preview
Published date: 04 December, 2018
Powered by the open source Virtual Kubelet technology, Azure Container Service (AKS) virtual node allows you to elastically provision additional pods inside Container Instances that start in seconds. With a few clicks in the Azure portal, turn on the virtual node feature and get the flexibility and portability of a container-focused experience in your AKS environment without needing to manage the additional compute resources. And as your Azure Container Instances containers can join the same virtual network as the rest of your cluster, you can build Kubernetes services that seamlessly span pods running on virtual machines (VMs) and Azure Container Instances.
