Overall Satisfaction with Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)
Used Azure Kubernetes for CI/CD pipeline for scale and manage microservice application. To manage and containerize applications, scaling services based on load. Used Azure Kubernetes for all application deployment and integration, containerization and scaling of applications. It is highly appreciable with its usage and policies, easy to maintain, governance and helpful for continuous deployment and integration.
- Continuous deployment
- Continuous Integration
- Containerization of application
- Security of Microsoft playing a vital role
- Management and governance of application
- Need to update cluster manually
- Policies cannot be updated for existing components
- if any change in policy every has to create cluster
- Cost efficient
- Microsoft security and management
- Easy management to scale application
- Highly scalable application is supported
- Easy and quick to deploy and integrate application
- Less efficient for cluster change management
- Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS)
Due to cost efficiency. And using AZURE cloud for other services as well. Azure Kubernetes Service is more suitable to configure CI/CD pipelines. With a facility of automated or One click deployment and integration of the application. As compared with other Kubernetes Services like Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service and Google Kubernetes Service, Azure Kubernetes is most cost-efficient with the same facilities and with an advantage to configure easily, manage easily, as it is one click manageable with Microsoft applications. It provides high Microsoft security to containers and secures applications from any kind of harm.

Azure Kubernetes Service is most cost efficient Kubernetes service. it has high security, good governance and easy to manage. Areas where it is less appropriate is manual cluster updates. Azure Kubernetes is most appropriate to use for containerization, continuous deployment and continuous integration. Its very easy to configure and can work with jenkins, and build tools as well. Its easy governance provide facility to manage appropriately. But the major issue is with when configuring clusters and a regular update of policy is required, in this case it requires to create new setup every time rather than updating the same existing items.
