Optional Uptime SLA now available for Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS)
Published date: 13 May, 2020
Financially backed SLA guarantees an uptime of 99.95 per cent for the Kubernetes API server for clusters that use Azure Availability Zones and 99.9 per cent for clusters that don’t use Availability Zones.
The uptime SLA for Kubernetes API server covers the availability of the server, which is the entry point for Kubernetes management operations, such as deploy, scale and update. Agent nodes availability, which is covered by the existing virtual machine (VM) SLA, covers availability of the compute instances where applications run.
