Generally available: AKS node pool user start/stop feature

Published date: 03 August, 2022

The AKS node pool start/stop feature allows you to completely stop specific user node pools and pick up later where you left off with a switch of a button, saving time and costs. 

Previously, you had to either scale a user node pool and all its workloads down to zero in order to save costs or keep it running with a low footprint to avoid re-deployment, adding to operations time or wasting compute resources. The start/stop feature keeps user node pool configurations in place, such as the previous node count, allowing you to pick up where you left off without reconfiguring the node pools.
