I had a question about about AKS and what I can logically do in the free tier. Is it possible to spin up a cluster (of some node count/size) without incurring any charges on my subscription in the free tier?

Thank you.

    Hi @Rohit Karthik
    Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) is a free container service that simplifies the deployment, management, and operations of Kubernetes as a fully managed Kubernetes container orchestrator service. Paying for only the virtual machines, and associated storage and networking resources consumed makes AKS the most efficient and cost-effective container service.

    Take advantage of no-charge cluster management and Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) is always free product.
