Kubernetes has emerged as the leader in the container orchestration and management platforms. However, this begs a question: Who will manage your Kubernetes Infrastructure? In this course, Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) – The Big Picture, you will learn the skills to deploy a managed Kubernetes platform on Microsoft Azure without worrying about the underlying computer and management overhead. First, you will learn the fundamentals of Docker and Kubernetes and see how it applies to a Microservices Architecture. Next, you will discover how to deploy an application to a local Kubernetes Cluster and see how that experience translates to deploying the same application to Azure Kubernetes Service without any change to the deployment experience. Finally, you will see how easy it is to scale your application workloads in AKS, which will help you take your AKS skills to the next level and help you modernize and re-platform your application workloads on Microsoft Azure. By the end of this course, you will have a foundational knowledge of Azure Kubernetes Service that will help you deploy containerized workloads on Azure with minimal management overhead.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name Manoj Ravikumar Nair. Welcome to my course, Azure Kubernetes Services - The Big Picture. I work as a cloud solutions architect with Microsoft. Whether you work for a startup, working on the next Pokemon Go or for an enterprise modernizing your applications workloads, containers are quickly becoming the preferred choice of computing for organizations worldwide. While working with a couple of containers is absolute fun, tens and thousands of containers can quickly spiral out of control. Thankfully, Kubernetes solves this problem and is quickly becoming the most sought after container orchestration service with excellent community support. This course is a quick introduction to Azure Kubernetes Service, or AKS, which is a managed Kubernetes service running on the enterprise-grade cloud offering powered Microsoft Azure. No experience in Docker or Kubernetes is required. Some of the major topics that we will cover include examining the use case for Kubernetes; understanding the fundamentals of Docker and Kubernetes; exploring the container ecosystem on Microsoft Azure; deploying, and scaling, and updating applications on the Azure Kubernetes Service. By the end of this course, you'll have a solid understanding of the fundamentals of the Azure Kubernetes Service and be ready to make an informed choice on how AKS would fit into your containerization or your modernization strategy. From here, continue your learning by diving into Azure Container Services with courses on Azure Container Instances and Designing a Compute Strategy for Microsoft Azure. I hope you'll join me in this journey to learn Azure Kubernetes Service, or AKS, with the Azure Kubernetes Services - The Big Picture course here, at Pluralsight. On that note, let's get kubing.
