See just how easy it is to deploy a service mesh to your AKS cluster. William Morgan, maintainer of the open source service mesh Linkerd, joins Scott Hanselman to demonstrate just how easy it is to deploy Linkerd. Together they explore how to debug a live microservices application using the service mesh, without changing any code.LinkerdAzure Kubernetes Service (AKS)Azure Kubernetes Service docsCreate a free account (Azure)
Recorded live at Build 2019, Ralph Squillace joins Scott Hanselman to talk about Helm 3, the most commonly used distributed application package manager for Kubernetes. Helm enables you to package, store, and deploy Kubernetes-based applications of any type by treating all components as one logical group. If you're already familiar with Helm and Kubernetes, you'll have been waiting for the security upgrades found in Helm 3. If you're investigating the new Windows support in Kubernetes, you'll want to understand Helm and Helm charts to bring your Windows workloads to the cloud's distributed container kernel, Kubernetes.HelmHelm blogHelm (GitHub repo)Create a free account (Azure)

Vipps released their payment app on May 30th, 2015. Five months later, they had exceeded a million active users. How in the world did they handle this explosive growth? Join Vipps and the API Management team as they do a technical breakdown on the journey from zero users to millions, and how Vipps used API Management, Azure DevOps, and Azure Kubernetes Service to transform their business from an on-premise monolith, to a microservice driven architecture, as seamlessly as possible. Discover what to do and what not to do when scaling your services, and how to use API Management and Azure Kubernetes Service together to create a highly scalable system that provides frictionless experiences for your customers.
Serverless vs Containers, Cost vs Performance, Tabs vs Spaces. These are just a few of the many questions every developer comes to terms with when choosing to host their application the cloud. The good news? It may not be as binary as it seems. Join Jeff Hollan is this live session as he showcases common cloud architectures around Kubernetes, Containers, and Serverless. Understand the benefits and drawbacks of each, and see how you can take advantage of the full spectrum of cloud native computing to build applications faster.
The presentation introduces the journey that we have faced and challenged in adopting widely distributed software systems and Microservices-based architectures in our project. Firstly, we focus on how a full-blown service mesh solution fixes perfectly into our hard use cases in the real world Microservices project. Secondly, we show you how can we resolve interesting challenges such as connect, secure, control and observe services with Istio on the powerful Azure cloud platform with a fully managed Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). Lastly, we give you a practical understandable demo which puts it all together, to sum up, what we did.
In this session we will start with a modern app and optimize it for Kubernetes using Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), In addition to migrating to AKS, we will take advantage of native Azure services like Cosmos DB API for Mongo DB ( in the process comparing options like running dockerized Mongo DB or hosted Mongo DB Atlas). We will also discuss the Kubernetes concepts like service discovery, external services, and service catalog and how they relate to AKS and Cosmos DB interaction. Finally, we will look at Cosmos DB capabilities like the Virtual Network Service Endpoints as a way to secure the traffic between AKS and Cosmos DB.
In this session, we share a developer’s perspective on how to leverage Windows Server Containers to modernize your apps. We’ll start with local development on Windows 10 PC then to Windows Server, running on-premises, Azure and hybrid. We’ll showcase new innovations and improvements in recent Windows Server releases including managing container identities, running containerized DirectX apps with GPU acceleration as well as logging and monitoring containers for a great management experience. Demos, lots of demos.
By itself, Kubernetes is not necessarily a developer-friendly platform. Building, deploying, and testing microservice-oriented applications involves a lot of manual work and copious amounts of YAML. Thankfully, Azure has the tools you need and makes Kubernetes approachable and productive for developers. In this session, we’ll cover how to design and build microservice applications that can run on the Azure Kubernetes Service, including how to navigate from an app to a container to a Helm package and how to deploy into Kubernetes in a continuous way using Azure DevOps. We’ll also cover how you can use Azure Dev Spaces to develop an app that includes a couple of microservices to one which includes dozens or hundreds.
Companies of all sizes and industries are embracing containers and Kubernetes to deliver mission-critical applications with greater agility in the development, test, and deployment cycles. In this session, we will discuss where we are heading with Kubernetes on Azure, share the most common scenarios and best practices derived from real customer use cases, and demo serverless Kubernetes, one of the application patterns that you can achieve through Kubernetes on Azure. Join us if you are starting in the Kubernetes journey and interested to know the frontier of this space!
