What we're about

The Azure Group (TAG) provides a forum for IT professionals to discuss and share expertise in understanding the cloud technologies available through the Microsoft Azure platform offerings. As organizations look to add cloud technologies to their suite of IT solutions, new technologies, new infrastructure opportunities and challenges arise. Started in Toronto and expanding across Canada, the goal of TAG is to share real world experiences and provide education opportunities as they relate to the Microsoft Azure cloud offerings. Our membership includes IT practitioners, managers, network administrators, students, and anyone who is interesting in learning more about implementing or leveraging the Azure services. Membership is free, simply sign up for event emails in the box below and show up to our event. No event registration required.

Azure Kubernetes Service - Intro to the Service Mesh

Link visible for attendees

The Azure Group is happy to announce our next virtual meetup to share knowledge with the Azure Community.

Presentation Description: Azure Kubernetes Service is a managed container orchestration service based on the open-source Kubernetes system, which is available on the Microsoft Azure public cloud. The term "service mesh" is one that has been circulated quite a bit in the past couple of years. As with any add-ons with Kubernetes, there is a complexity-to-benefit ratio that needs to be evaluated, and service mesh usage is no exception. In this session, we'll explore what a service mesh is, why you may (or may not) need one, and a review of several service mesh candidates with their associated pros and cons.

Presenter Bio: Josh Garverick is a multi-disciplined Cloud Solution Architect in the Microsoft Business Group at Cognizant brining 15+ years of experience in Software Development, Cloud Architecture, and Application Lifecycle Management. He is an eight-time Microsoft MVP, the sole author of Migrating to Azure as well as a contributing author on The Developer’s Guide to Azure (2021).

We look forward to see you on the September 13th!
