We use [Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)] to deploy and manage multiple instances of micro service APIs for our customers. [Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)] allows us to quickly deploy and manage our APIs at scale in a repeatable way.
  • Highly repeatable process
  • Minimizes the amount of software to install
  • Easily scale resources to meet demand
  • Steep learning curve
  • Expected charges are unclear until you see real production usage
  • Operations teams need to learn an entirely new skill set
[Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)] is great when you need to be able to deploy a large number of services in a highly repeatable way. Once you know how to use it, it is a very fast to stand up a new environment.

However there is a lot you need to know to get to that point and it is a specialized area. This is not suitable for small teams who are supporting multiple product stacks.

Azure Kubernetes Service is used by the Product development and Cloud team here. It is used to scale the microservices very easily. It provides an open solution that offers portability for both user containers and user application configuration. It also accelerates containerized application development for the developers.
Easy to set up in CI/CD pipeline It has a good pricing option as well in Azure. Basic works fine.

  • Database services monitoring is weak.
  • It doesn't possess a good monitoring solution.
  • Response times in cloud applications could be faster.
Azure Kubernetes service works well, installs easily, is robust and is constantly updated. It uses a great environment when you're running a bunch of servers handling user traffic. The monitoring is quite nice too. Except for the monitoring tools for the database. Azure Kubernetes service still doesn't support autoscaling of nodes. It takes time to fully set up. But once you get going it’s fine.
Microsoft support was really good, whenever we raise any ticket they come back to us within a couple of hours.
