The key strength of Kubernetes lies in its modularity and versatility. Virtually any type of application you aim to deploy can be accommodated within the Kubernetes framework, and it can handle a wide range of adjustments or optimizations to meet your specific requirements.
However, this adaptability and generality do come with a trade-off – a moderate level of complexity. It’s essential to have a solid grasp of how Kubernetes’ APIs and components function to unlock its full potential for simplifying application development, management, and deployment. Equally critical is understanding how to seamlessly integrate Kubernetes with various external systems, such as on-premise databases and continuous delivery pipelines, to make it a practical solution in real-world scenarios.
Throughout this book, authors strived to offer insights based on real-world experience, covering topics that are likely to be encountered by cloud engineers and developers, whether they are new to Kubernetes or seasoned administrators. Whether you’re exploring a new area to become an expert or seeking a refresher on familiar challenges, authors aim is to facilitate your learning journey.
By following these best practices, you can tap into authors’ collective experience to avoid common pitfalls, enhance performance and security, and gain the confidence to maximize the benefits of Kubernetes.
Thank you for reading my short review of the book, as it looks like a solid resource for real-world endeavors of cloud engineering and development!

YOU are all MVPs
Yes, that is right, this nomination and reward belongs to all of us. Because we are a unique community that shared interesting and informative posts and encouraged everyone to start their cloud journey.
Congrats to Martin on becoming Microsoft MVP
As you might know, an active member of our #cloudmarathoner community, Martin Dimovski, became an MVP just a few weeks ago. I have congratulated him on social channels as he truly embraced the #cloudmarathoner community and become one of the vocal people in our community. So, please join me in congratulating him.
What it takes to be an MVP
The MVP Award is a global program of recognized technology experts and community leaders who actively supporting technical communities through unique, innovative, and consistent knowledge sharing. These community leaders actively contribute to support the developer and IT Pro communities worldwide, helping them learn, build, and use our products. Learn below what the Microsoft MVP Program seeks for recognition of future community leaders.
Demonstrate community leadership and influence
Our program finds strength in diversity, inclusion, and positive influence. In all our interactions, we aspire to embody and champion these values as a program and as a community. Qualifying applicants must demonstrate leadership and ability to facilitate the sharing of knowledge with others, promote inclusive activities, and advance social good to support the community and under-represented groups.
Be a technical expert
Community leaders must have deep knowledge and expertise aligned to a Microsoft product or service or related open-source technologies. Through community work, qualifying applicants should be able to demonstrate their technical expertise.
Be a great advocate for the community
Leverage your technical expertise to advocate in the technical community. Qualifying applicants should generate local and global awareness that supports adoption and learning of Microsoft products & services through authentic connections, online/offline activities, and community enablement.
Contribute to the success of our products
Qualifying applicants should use their ability to discover and recommend improvements to Microsoft products & services through Microsoft official feedback channels (e.g., GitHub, Tech Community, etc.) or work on open-source extensions within the ecosystem.
I just want to say a massive, heartfelt thank you to all of you phenomenal individuals and organizations (T-REX Solutions, Cloud Lunch and Learn, MVP Community and LinkedIn community) for being my cheerleaders, my mentors, and my friends throughout my Microsoft MVP work and cloud journey. Your continued support has not only made me leapfrog personal and professional milestones but has also injected me with a hefty dose of confidence and determination.
I feel incredibly blessed to have such an extraordinary network of rockstars supporting me, and I can’t wait to keep on growing, learning, and rocking the tech world alongside each and every one of you! Sending you all a virtual bear hug filled with gratitude and joy!
What is Next?
I am still in a pleasant shock, and simply to say that “I am proud and humbled to receive this award” is an understatement. I am truly proud to be recognized along the way with the rest of the #MVP community while helping the #CloudMarathoner community to grow and prosper.
I am really happy to continue this cloud journey and invite you – the Cloud Marathoners ⛅🏃♂️🏃♀️ to join as well and be an important part of this community!!!
We started the #CloudMarathoner community and cloud learning journey approximately 3+ years ago with few posts and followers. My main intention in starting this hashtag is to help everyone learn the #cloud #fundamentals & #architecture while sharing training resources that could help you in your awesome #cloud journey.
We ARE GROWING every month
Thank you for your continued feedback and support! Our #CloudMarathoner community is over 1600+ members strong and we are growing it every month. This community of contributors and members like Hugo Barona, Jackson Feldon, new MVP – Martin Dimovski, John Lokerse and many other leaders are able to reach and inspire many more people every day and week.
In this workshop, you will build a complete application including a website with authentication and 3 microservices, deploy it to Azure using a CI/CD pipeline, monitor and tune the scaling of our services, and use log tracing to debug issues.
This workshop approach is one of many ways to get started with Node.js Microservices in Azure. But, I am interested to hear from you.
What is your preferred way to implement microservices in Azure ⁉ 🤔 Please, share your feedback 💬 in the comments or in the following LinkedIn post.
I hope you will enjoy this reference architecture and the @GitHub code repo. More importantly, you got a chance to learn something new. Hopefully, you’ll be able to take this knowledge back to your projects and improve your solutions.
Let’s focus on answering the main question of this post. And some of you may suspect that we will allude to Azure Arc, right?
Microsoft Azure Arc
Yes, with the Microsoft Azure Arc, you can manage servers running on-premises, at the edge, and in multi-cloud environments. And with the latest updates, now, you also get SSH access to your Linux and Windows Servers running anywhere using Azure Arc-enabled servers.
Direct Network Connectivity
Even though direct network connectivity (like SSH connection into the server) can be a challenge in hybrid and multi-cloud environments, Azure Arc-enabled servers enable this unique capability for you.
What are the Helpful References?
Well, let me mention the following important three references that will get you going in your Azure Arc journey, ok?
I hope this provides you with a good overview and resources of how you can manage and SSH access your Linux and Windows Servers anywhere using Azure Arc. And if you feel like you got a question, please, feel free to leave a comment on my LinkedIn post.
