As we think about services that Azure can offer, we often think about apps (e.g., App Services, AKS, and Service Fabric) and data (e.g., Azure Storage, Data Bricks, and Azure Data Lake). It turns out that you can also leverage Azure purely as a Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) –Network is a basic building block for all the […]

Kubernetes is a container orchestrator that automates the deploying and scaling of […]
