We all know Skype for conference calls, instant messaging with clients or chat rooms. But if you haven’t been using it for business, you may have missed out on some new functionalities. Record Skype calls to capture key decisions, and use live subtitles to read the words spoken. Easily share presentations, images, or anything on your screen during a call with integrated screen sharing. Access one skype account across multiple devices—even Alexa!

Slack

Slack is the communication tool that brings remote teams together. The platform organizes conversations into channels, which team members can join and leave, as needed, so nobody receives messages or notifications irrelevant to them. Conversations can also be had in threads, which keep messages outside of the main channel so chats don’t get in the way of main topics and projects.

Key features

• Instant messaging: Live communication between every team member for seamless collaboration.

• Statuses: Users can set availability statuses to focus on individual tasks as needed.

• File sharing: Drag-and-drop file sharing for PDFs, images, videos and other common files types.

• Voice & video calls: Voice and video calls directly from within Slack.

• Screen sharing: Allows team members to show their work to others in real-time for stronger collaboration.

Zoom is a suite of video conferencing and communication tools designed for remote teams, virtual businesses conferences, webinars and other corporate purposes. We use Zoom for our virtual meetings, which we can use to run video and voice calls, but it’s capable of much more than this.

Key features

· Video meetings: Remote teams can run video meetings and one-to-one video calls.

· Voice calls: You can also run group or one-to-one voice calls when face-to-face meetings aren’t necessary.

· Webinars: You can also use Zoom to host webinars.

· Messaging: Team members can send messages using Zoom.

· File sharing: Share files during and outside of video/voice chats for collaboration between members.

Getting started with Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS).


Azure Kubernetes Service

Kubernetes allows you to build your applications with your preferred programming language, OS, libraries, or messaging bus. Existing continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) tools can integrate with Kubernetes to schedule and deploy releases.

Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) provides a managed Kubernetes service that reduces the complexity for deployment and core management tasks, including coordinating upgrades. The AKS control plane is managed by the Azure platform, and you only pay for the AKS nodes that run your applications

Kubernetes cluster architecture

A Kubernetes cluster is divided into two components:

· Control plane nodes provide the core Kubernetes services and orchestration of application workloads.

· Nodes run your application workloads.

Azure Kubernetes Service

You can create AKS using Azure portal or CLI tools. Azure portal option is beginner friendly. First you can go into azure portal and select containers. Then select Kubernetes Service.

Azure Kubernetes Service

Then it will direct into Create Kubernetes Cluster window. In that you can select new resource group and give cluster name. Also you can select preferred Kubernetes version. Afterward you can select Review+ create to build AKS.

Azure Kubernetes Service

Azure also supports creating AKS using CLI. For that you can use following commands.

az group create –name myResourceGroup –location eastus

az aks create --resource-group myResourceGroup --name myAKSCluster

 --node-count 1 --enable-addons monitoring --generate-ssh-keys

Once AKS created you can view using portal or commands line.

Azure Kubernetes Service

Since Azure manage things like networking, scaling, monitoring we can only focus on deploying applications.

Auto Scaling

Azure Kubernetes Service

Monitoring

Once application deployed it can be viewed using command line or dashboard. Next tutorial we will discuss deploying application to Kubernetes cluster. You can launch AKS dashboard using following command.

az aks browse –resource-group myResourceGroup –name myAKSCluster

After application deployment you can go to services in look for public IP address to launch web site.
