One of my Python client services is running on the cloud Kubernetes. I want to redirect some requests from the cloud to an on-premise Kubernetes cluster so that certain executions can run there through Azure Arc. How can this be achieved without setting up the Python client service on the on-premise Kubernetes cluster? like some nodes run here on premise kubernetes cluster

    @Varsha Zutshi

    I understand that you have a python service running on AKS and want to direct certain requests to your on-premises Azure Arc cluster.
    You could consider utilizing a load balancing solution such as Azure Traffic Manager. *Azure Traffic Manager can direct customers to the desired Kubernetes cluster and application instance. Traffic Manager is a DNS-based traffic load balancer that can distribute network traffic across regions. For the best performance and redundancy, direct all application traffic through Traffic Manager before it goes to your AKS cluster.*In a multi-cluster deployment, customers should connect to a Traffic Manager DNS name that points to the services on each AKS cluster. Define these services by using Traffic Manager endpoints. Each endpoint is the service load balancer IP. Use this configuration to direct network traffic from the Traffic Manager endpoint in one region to the endpoint in a different region.

    Another option might be to utilize Application Gateway for Containers. Application Gateway for Containers is an application layer (layer 7) load balancing and dynamic traffic management product for workloads running in a Kubernetes cluster.

    Checkout these options and see if they fit your use-case. Let me know if you have additional questions or need further assistance.
