Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS) day-2 operations guide

After you release an Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)-hosted application, prepare for day-2 operations. Day-2 operations include triage, ongoing maintenance of deployed assets, rolling out upgrades, and troubleshooting.

Day-2 operations help you:

  • Keep up to date with your service-level agreement (SLA) or service-level objective (SLO) requirements.
  • Troubleshoot customer support requests.
  • Stay current with the latest platform features and security updates.
  • Plan for future growth.


The Day-2 operations guide assumes that you've deployed the Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) baseline architecture as an example of a production cluster.
