It’s been about a month since we finalized the acquisition of Deis to expand the Azure Container Service and Kubernetes support on Azure. It’s been really fantastic to watch the two teams come together and begin to work together. In particular I’ve been excited to get to know the Helm team better and begin to see how we can build tight integrations between Helm and Kubernetes on Azure Container Service.
Containers and Kubernetes can dramatically improve the operability and reliability of software that is developed on the cloud. First the container itself is an immutable package that carries all of its dependencies with it. This means that you have strong assurances that if you build a working solution on your laptop, it will run the same when you deploy it to Azure.
