So it’s been quite a while since I blogged, the longest “dry season” for me since starting. Why is that?! Well, I kinda flipped my life with moving to the US and becoming a program manager in Azure Compute R&D.
It is been a bit more than two years now at Microsoft. After acting as an Azure Cloud Solutions Architect it is now time to move on in my career, and boy, so many changes at once.
We’ve come a long way with understanding and leveraging acs-engine but wait, there is more to it. We can also add Windows Agents to the mix a deploy a specific Kubernetes version.
In the previous post, I showed you how easy it is to deploy a basic K8s cluster using acs-engine. That’s great and all but most deployments requires you to consider the existing Azure environment and customer requirements. In this post, we will play a bit with custom VNet and Azure managed disks.
Now that we have all tools installed and a working IDE, it’s time to deploy an actual Kubernetes cluster using acs-engine.
Time to get all pieces in place. In order to start deploying K8s cluster using acs-engine, we need to start getting all of our tools inline such as Azure CLI, IDE environment, and the actual acs-engine binaries.
There are some announcements that make you feel like a kid again! about two hours ago, Microsoft announced the “Transforming your VMware environment with Microsoft Azure” program. This is our way to show VMware customers that there is another way, there are more options and that Azure is that cool!
In the past few weeks, I’ve been doing some work on deploying Kubernetes clusters using Azure Container Service Engine aka acs-engine so I thought this might be a great topic to do a multiple parts blog series.
