Simplify managing, deploying, and maintaining a K8 cluster on-premises​

AKS hybrid deployment options (AKS hybrid) simplifies managing, deploying, and maintaining a Kubernetes cluster on-premises, making it quicker to get started hosting Linux and Windows containers in your data center. As a hosted Kubernetes service, AKS hybrid handles critical day-to-day management, such as upgrades and automatic certificate rotations, so you can focus on running and developing containerized workloads. AKS hybrid also natively connects to Azure Arc, so you have a single Azure control plane to manage all your AKS clusters running anywhere – on Azure and on-premises.

Why use AKS hybrid for containerized applications?​

If you’ve been using AKS in Azure to deploy and run your applications, it’s easy to get started with running AKS on-premises. While you can certainly manage a few containers manually using Docker and Windows, apps often make use of five, ten, or even hundreds of containers, which is what a Kubernetes orchestrator helps with.

Kubernetes is an open-source orchestrator for automating container management at scale. AKS simplifies on-premises Kubernetes deployment by providing wizards you can use to set up Kubernetes, essential add-ons, and create Kubernetes clusters to host your workloads.
