Exercises
Fruit Smashers' are ready to adopt the latest features of AKS to better position themselves for security and access control, starting with their Fruit Smoothie ratings application. You will then need to migrate the existing application to a dedicated namespace, with access limited to the Smooth Devs team, authenticated using Azure AD. You'll also need to clean up any legacy components.
Fruit Smashers would like to onboard a new application. This must be isolated using a dedicated node pool and a separate namespace, accessible only to the Better Devs team.
Now that your applications are up and running on their new infrastructure, it is time to implement a solution for monitoring cluster, node, pod, and container health, using Azure Dashboards and Azure Monitor Workbooks.
