Back in 2019 Microsoft introduced the ephemeral OS disk option for Azure VMs and VMSS.
Instead of storing and persisting the OS disk to the Azure remote storage the ephemeral OS disk is stored onto the VM’s cache. Hence, ephemeral OS disks are perfect for stateless workloads like Azure Kubernetes Read more [...]
Since PowerShell is available on Azure Functions this is the way to go for automating things in Azure. Especially running the function in the consumption plan and with a managed identity enabled.

That said I like to share some optimizations with you getting the Read more [...]
Just a short information about the update I have done for the Azure Function App doing the AKS Azure CNI IP address calculation.
Since the last update there has been a change to the maximum nodes per cluster limit supported by AKS.
Maximum nodes per cluster (only with multiple node pools and VMSS): 1000

Just a short information about the update I have done for the Azure Function App doing the AKS Advanced Networking IP address calculation (Azure CNI).
Since I have written the Azure Function App, they have been some changes what limits are supported for AKS using Azure CNI networking.
Minimum pods per node: 30
Maximum pods per node: 250
Maximum nodes per cluster (only with multiple node Read more [...]
Azure Functions 2.0 introduced the capability to run Functions in a container. So, you have the choice to run your Functions natively on Azure in the consumption plan for automated massive scale or in a container on your Azure Kubernetes Service or Kubernetes cluster.
But how you configure automated scaling for a Functions application in a container on Kubernetes to run it like on Azure?
The Read more [...]
Lately I was playing around with Azure Functions especially the HTTP Trigger Function and was seeking for a good use case of a Function taking JSON input and providing JSON as output.
Looking at a certain task you need to do before you can deploy AKS with Advanced Networking enabled. I had found my use case. Before you can deploy AKS with Advanced Networking, Azure CNI plugin, you are required to Read more [...]
Azure Functions is currently not available in Azure Germany. If you want to start with Functions in Azure Germany, then you have to use the Functions Runtime as a workaround.
The Functions Runtime can be installed on a Windows Server 2016 Read more [...]
