General Availability: Azure Kubernetes Service support for proximity placement groups
Published date: October 28, 2020
One of the factors affecting Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) application latency performance is network latency due to the physical distance between agent nodes. You can now 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.
