What is Azure Kubernetes Fleet Manager?

Azure Kubernetes Fleet Manager (Fleet) enables at-scale management of multiple Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) clusters. Fleet supports the following scenarios:

  • Create a Fleet resource and group AKS clusters as member clusters.

  • Orchestrate Kubernetes version and node image upgrades across multiple clusters by using update runs, stages, and groups.

  • Create Kubernetes resource objects on the Fleet resource's hub cluster and control their propagation to member clusters (preview).

  • Export and import services between member clusters, and load balance incoming L4 traffic across service endpoints on multiple clusters (preview).
