Announcing AKS Support: Get Applications Deployed to Azure Easily with Infrastructure from Code

Today we announce that appCD now supports Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS). This allows platform engineers to set standards at the infrastructure level and for developers to use appCD to easily generate infrastructure from code based on the source application code and deploy to AKS.

Why it Matters

Infrastructure as Code (IaC) has many benefits, but as with all technology it also has some limitations. Both platform engineers and developers love it and hate it. Writing infrastructure as code is hugely beneficial, but even the most savvy technologist can struggle writing IaC well. 

Infrastructure from Code (IfC) changes all that. By statically analyzing application code, appCD creates a visualization of the deployment architecture, enables developers to enhance it via a drag and drop interface and then generate the IaC with all the standards that platform teams require. These standards can be anything from security requirements like least privilege access control, to compliance needs like PCI, HIPAA, GDPR or SOC 2. 

Why Azure Kubernetes Service

With more than 722.22 million Azure users and almost 5,000 companies using AKS, ensuring that these teams can deploy applications without needing to be IaC experts can help get features, updates, and new applications to market faster. 

How to Try Infrastructure from Code with AKS

If you are curious about IfC and want to try it with your application and AKS, you can do this in a few ways: 

  1. Developer Edition: Connect your own repo to the appCD Developer Edition. It is free to use and will generate IaC that you can review against your existing files. Try the Dev Edition

  2. CLI: Use the CLI to try appCD. View documentation.
