about this example

Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) offers a managed Kubernetes environment, which is becoming the go-to solution for container orchestration. This example diagram illustrates:

  • Network Structure: Showcases the hub-and-spoke network topology in Azure with AKS at its core.
  • Security and Isolation: Highlights the use of Azure Key Vault for secrets management and Azure Firewall for robust network security.
  • Service Communication: Details service interconnectivity and traffic flow between on-premises, AKS, and internet-bound communications.
  • Monitoring and Management: Depicts integration with Azure Monitor for operational insights and Azure Application Gateway for intelligent routing.

When to use
  • Initial AKS Deployment: When planning the network and security infrastructure for a new AKS deployment.
  • Enhancing Security: For enhancing security and compliance postures in an existing Kubernetes setup.
  • Scaling Operations: While scaling AKS clusters and integrating advanced monitoring and diagnostic tools.

How to use
  1. Start editing: Clone or duplicate the example file to begin tailoring the architecture to your requirements.
  2. Customize diagram: Revise the diagram by adding or adjusting nodes, groups, and relationships to reflect your AKS setup.
  3. Customize layout: Reorganize components for clarity and to reflect the actual or proposed AKS infrastructure.
  4. Collect feedback: Distribute the updated diagram to your team and stakeholders to gather input and further refine the architecture.
