Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) support for Azure Availability Zones is now available
Published date: 04 November, 2019
Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) support for Azure Availability Zones is now generally available to help customers protect applications and data from data centre failures. Under the model, an AKS cluster distributes resources such as nodes and storage across the underlying Azure compute infrastructure. The nodes run across separate update and fault domains in a single Azure data centre, providing a high level of availability protection against hardware failures and during planned maintenance events. The model also enables customers to achieve higher availability and resilience for worker nodes.
