While working on creating training material on Azure IaC using Terraform, I created a small demo project to create an Azure AKS cluster from scratch and integrated it with Terraform Cloud. It came out quite nicely and therefore I thought I would share it with larger audience 🙂.
Detailed instructions can be found on the repo README. You'll need your own Azure account and a subscription. The AKS cluster code is a local module and the created cluster will have the following features:
- Nodes with Ubuntu OS
- Azure CNI
- Separate vnet and subnet
- Single nodepool with autoscaling enabled
- AKS managed Azure AD integration
- System-assigned managed Identity
- Cluster auto-upgrade enabled
Quick note about Terraform Cloud - if you haven't tried it yet, you should. It has a free plan for smaller teams up to 5 and provides a way to manage state remotely and securely.
Happy coding 🤘.
