Description

This course is focused on how to get a Kubernetes cluster up and running on Azure. It does not cover all of the details of how Kubernetes works because it’s not necessary to know all of those details to configure a basic Kubernetes cluster.

The course starts with a brief overview of what Kubernetes does and what a Kubernetes cluster looks like. After that, you’ll see a demo of how to create a cluster using AKS. Finally, you’ll see how to manage a cluster using the kubectl command.

Learning Objectives

  • Create and configure an Azure Kubernetes Service cluster

Intended Audience

  • Anyone who would like to learn the basics of using Azure Kubernetes Service

Prerequisites

  • General IT knowledge
  • Linux experience (recommended)
  • A Microsoft Azure account is recommended if you want to do the demos yourself (sign up for a free trial at https://azure.microsoft.com/free if you don’t have an account)

Transcript

Welcome to “Configuring Azure Kubernetes Service”. My name’s Guy Hummel, and I’m a Microsoft Certified Azure Expert. If you have any questions, feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn and send me a message, or send an email to support@cloudacademy.com.

This course is focused on how to get a Kubernetes cluster up and running on Azure. It does not cover all of the details of how Kubernetes works because that’s a very big topic, and it’s not necessary to know all of those details to configure a basic Kubernetes cluster.

Having said that, this course does start with a brief overview of what Kubernetes does and what a Kubernetes cluster looks like. After that, I’ll give you a demo of how to create a cluster using AKS. Finally, I’ll show you how to manage a cluster using the kubectl command.

To get the most from this course, you should have some general IT knowledge. It would also be helpful to have some experience with Linux. If you want to do the demos yourself, as well, then you’ll need to have an Azure account. If you don’t already have one, then you can create a free trial account.

To save you the trouble of typing in the commands shown in this course, I’ve put them in a readme file in a GitHub repository. You can find a link to the repository at the bottom of the Overview tab below this video.

We’d love to get your feedback on this course, so please give it a rating when you’re finished.

Now, if you’re ready to learn how to create a Kubernetes cluster on Azure, then let’s get started.
