All about Microservices architecture on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

Submitted May 2, 2019

In this session, I’d focus on designing and hosting microservices architecture applications using AKS(Azure Kubernetes Service). We’ll learn about what is AKS and how it is a fit platform for running microservices archtitecture. This will be a blend of talk and demo.

I’d expect audiance to be IT Professional(DevOps/Containers) and IT Developers(Microservices) background. Key takeaway for them would be about running microservices solutions on kubernetes, learn about AKS and other services of Azure which could be useful in Microservices.


We’ll be talking about

  • What is AKS and How it is diffrent than your regular Kubernetes environments
  • Microservices archtiecture refresher
  • Microservices and AKS - How they’re best fit for each other
  • Designing microservices architecture on AKS
  • Demo - Running an end to end Microservices Solution on Azure
  • 9 things to know before planning microservices deployment on AKS
  • Scaling, Orchestration and monitoring


if required, we can enable a lab exercise/environemnt for participants as well. In that case they’d need to get a laptop.
