Why developers like Azure Kubernetes Service?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Azure Kubernetes Service in their tech stack.
Visual Studio Azure DevOps Azure Functions Azure Websites #Azure #AzureKeyVault #AzureAD #AzureApps
#Azure Cloud Since Amazon is potentially our competitor then we need a different cloud vendor, also our programmers are microsoft oriented so the choose were obviously #Azure for us.
Azure DevOps Because we need to be able to develop a neww pipeline into Azure environment ina few minutes.
Azure Kubernetes Service We already in #Azure , also need to use K8s , so let's use AKS as it's a manged Kubernetes in the #Azure
Context: GivePenny is the charity sponsorship platform for the modern world. We are re-platforming onto .NET Core-based microservices and ReactJS-based micro-frontends in Docker containers hosted on Azure Kubernetes Service.
We use .NET Core because of the easily attainable high quality bar for our microservices. We love the succinct yet clear C# language making code easy to read. We rate the advantages of the strongly-typed aspect of C# and of compiled (so type-checked) unit tests in a "backend" service context. The test stack and tooling support in Visual Studio around service tests, contract management, unit tests, web APIs and publish/subscribe message handlers is easy to work with. The easy integration between Visual Studio and Azure Resource Manager based infrastructure, Azure DevOps, Nuget and Docker makes build, publishing, release and hosting very easy. The cross-platform nature of .NET Core allows Windows and Linux developers to co-exist and services to be hosted on multiple platforms.
We are actively considering to move our infrastructure to Azure Kubernetes Service from our Azure Virtual Machines. Developers don't commit code 24/7. This results in highs and lows where dynamic scaling could help in major way to keep the costs down while providing fast review service.
