Azure Kubernetes Service updates and .NET Core 3.1 in GA for Azure App Service – A lot of updates for Azure Kubernetes Services and App Services finally catches up with the cool .Net Core kids. Right now the world is adapting, changing, learning, and helping to understand what the impact of COVID-19 is currently and for the future as part of that huge task for all of us, the help of developers, cloud providers, scientists and many more is both needed and very welcomed.
These projects include an interactive dashboard showing global data from John Hopkins University, a US COVID-19 tracker project use of personal computers as volunteers to model molecular dynamics for a vaccine, a COVID-19 genomic epidemiology dashboard, data visualization projects and much more.
Microsoft and GitHub are donating 60,000 hours a day of computing in the cloud as well. Azure Kubernetes Services is Microsoft service for managing all your containers. Uh Oh. What is Kubernetes? Well take a look at my colleague Nigel Poulton in his show Kubernetes This Month. So this week a bunch of updates were released for Kubernetes on Azure.
Windows Server Containers in AKS is now generally available and this means you can run Linux and Windows workloads side by side in a single cluster. Azure private link for AKS is now generally available. Use it to isolate your Kubernetes API server within your Azure Virtual Network.
Azure Adviser integration with AKS is now also generally available as your adviser can recommend solutions that help improve the performance, high availability and security of your AKS cluster. And finally managed identity support in AKS is also now available. Azure App Services hosts your website, your APIs and your container applications among many other things.
You can use a variety of languages. And platforms to deploy and run these applications, including Java, NodeJS, C sharp and Python. So this week, .NET Core 3.1 became generally available for app services. This is a very handy upgrade since version 3.0 had end of life almost two months ago. Yay for being up to date. No more couch surfing this week.
