Back then, this procedure required the involvement of Azure support via a support ticket.
Things have changed since then, and now you can initiate the migration yourself. Select Read more [...]
This is a rather short blog post about a hidden gem in the Azure documentation.
You have two options today migrating an existing Azure storage account from the LRS (locally redundant storage) to ZRS (zone-redundant storage) replication option. A manual migration or live migration.

Conditions in Terraform are well-known and can provide in combination with the for_each argument a lot of flexibility. In today’s blog post I walk you through an example storage module I have created to showcase the topic.

The good news is that we can use Azure Backup with its support Read more [...]
When you followed the Azure docs on how to dynamically create Azure Disks via a Kubernetes PVC, you saw the instructions to create a backup of the disk. Snapshots are leveraged for this. But it is a manual task you must accomplish.
It would be nice to have an automated solution which also take Read more [...]
In one of my previous blog posts I have explained how to use dysk in Azure Kubernetes Service as persistent storage option.
Today we have a look how a Kubernetes version upgrade of an AKS cluster effects dysk in operations and may force you to rethink your chosen Azure VM and OS disk SKU.
First Read more [...]
In one of my last blog posts I have explained how to use dysk in Azure Kubernetes Service as persistent storage option.
Since then some of the dysk parts have been moved to the official Azure GitHub repository.
Comparing the deployment Read more [...]
When you are running stateful microservices on your AKS cluster and you are looking for a persistent storage options beside native Azure PaaS services like Cosmos DB, Azure SQL Database, Azure Database for MySQL or Azure Database for PostgreSQL, then you have two options. Per default Kubernetes supports Azure Disk and Azure File as storage classes natively.
