Look inside

Mission: Proof of Concept. E-CO, an e-commerce organization that sells products for outdoor enthusiasts, wants to migrate its containerized, on-premises applications to the public cloud. Instead of managing its own Kubernetes clusters built on Azure VMs, E-CO has chosen to use Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) and to host its containerized applications on Microsoft Azure. As a member of E-CO’s platform team, you’ll spearhead this critical project, starting with ensuring that E-CO’s applications can stand up to an AKS cluster. You’ll use Terraform to develop the necessary code for deploying an AKS cluster, and you’ll write Terratest functions in Go to validate that the deployment functions as expected. When you’re done, you’ll have a tested, deployed, and validated AKS cluster that will stand the test of time.
