Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) support for proximity placement groups is now available
Published date: June 24, 2020
One of the factors affecting AKS application latency performance is network latency due to the physical distance between agent nodes. To help alleviate this, you now have the capability to associate a proximity placement group with an AKS node pool in order to co-locate agent nodes and minimize node-to-node latency. This enables AKS to support latency-sensitive workloads in critical business scenarios.
