In this video, I had the chance to speak with Jason Hansen (Principal Program Manager at Microsoft) about how you can centrally design, deploy, and operate Kubernetes apps and clusters anywhere using Azure Arc.
With Azure Arc-enabled Kubernetes, you can attach and configure Kubernetes clusters located either inside or outside Azure. When you connect a Kubernetes cluster to Azure Arc, it will:
To connect a Kubernetes cluster to Azure, the cluster administrator needs to deploy agents. These agents:
azure-arcKubernetes namespace as standard Kubernetes deployments.
Azure Arc-enabled Kubernetes supports industry-standard SSL to secure data in transit. Also, data at rest is stored encrypted in an Azure Cosmos DB database to ensure data confidentiality.
Azure Arc-enabled Kubernetes works with any Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) certified Kubernetes clusters. The Azure Arc team has worked with key industry partners to validate conformance of their Kubernetes distributions with Azure Arc-enabled Kubernetes.
Azure Arc-enabled Kubernetes supports the following scenarios:
Connect Kubernetes running outside of Azure for inventory, grouping, and tagging.
Deploy applications and apply configuration using GitOps-based configuration management.
View and monitor your clusters using Azure Monitor for containers.
Enforce threat protection using Azure Defender for Kubernetes.
Apply policy definitions using Azure Policy for Kubernetes.
