What is Azure Kubernetes Fleet Manager (preview)?

Azure Kubernetes Fleet Manager (Fleet) enables multi-cluster and at-scale scenarios for Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) clusters. A Fleet resource creates a cluster that can be used to manage other member clusters.

Fleet supports the following scenarios:

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

  • Create Kubernetes resource objects on the Fleet resource's cluster and control their propagation to all or a subset of all member clusters.

  • Export a service from one member cluster to the Fleet resource. Once successfully exported, the service and its endpoints are synced to the hub, which other member clusters (or any Fleet resource-scoped load balancer) can consume.


Azure Kubernetes Fleet Manager preview features are available on a self-service, opt-in basis. Previews are provided "as is" and "as available," and they're excluded from the service-level agreements and limited warranty. Azure Kubernetes Fleet Manager previews are partially covered by customer support on a best-effort basis. As such, these features aren't meant for production use.
