Take off for the Clouds with Spinnaker in Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

One of the great things about Spinnaker is the ability to run its microservice architecture in Kubernetes. You set up your cloud provider, deploy some pods and you are up and running!

At Armory we’ve been doing AWS and GCP installs for some time. And our friends at Microsoft continue to grow their cloud presence, with Azure seeing double digit growth as the second largest public cloud provider. In April of last year, Microsoft worked with the core Spinnaker team to release support of Azure for deployments in version 1.13. We’ve started experimenting with Azure and we’ve found that deploying a Spinnaker instance in Azure is an experience on par with other cloud providers.

Today we’ve published our guide to Installing Spinnaker in AKS, Azure Kubernetes Service. You’ll find it to be very similar to our install guides for other cloud providers. I’m confident you’ll have a working Spinnaker instance in under an hour if you have a basic understanding of Azure services and a working knowledge of Kubernetes!

Keep in mind that where you run Spinnaker does not limit you on where you can deploy applications. From a Spinnaker instance running in Azure, you easily can deploy workloads to other cloud providers, along with Kubernetes clusters anywhere. A full list of supported cloud providers is available on Spinnaker.io.
