You’ve just created the Kubernetes cluster in Microsoft Azure. This cluster uses arm64-powered Virtual Machines as the compute nodes. You will now connect to this cluster using Azure Cloud Shell.
To connect to the cluster, proceed as follows:
az aks get-credentials -g rg-arm64 -n aks-people
You should see the following output from this command:
From now on, you can manage the cluster using the
kubectl. This tool provides the command line interface for controlling the Kubernetes control plane. This communication happens over the REST API. So, under the hood, kubectl needs to know the API server address of the control plane. Fortunately, we do not need to explicitly use this address. The
az aks get-credentials command we used previously has configured this for us automatically. Therefore, the
kubectl commands will be communicating with the cluster we created.
kubectl command, and follow many Kubernetes tutorials.
For instance, let’s display the list of nodes by typing the following command:
kubectl get nodes
The output of this command will look as shown below:
We have one node, which we will now use to deploy the application.
