In this quickstart guide, you will set up a Kubernetes Cluster on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

1. Tooling Installation

1.1 Install Kubectl

Follow this link ( to install kubectl.

For Mac users

brew install kubernetes-cli

Check kubectl version after installation.

kubectl version

Quickstart scripts are tested under kubectl client version v1.16.3 and server version v1.13.12

1.2 Install Helm

To install Helm, see Installing Helm.

For Mac users

brew install kubernetes-helm

Check helm version after installation.

helm version

This quickstart provides helm supports for helm v3.0.0 and v2.12.1. Pick the script based on your helm version.

1.3 Install Azure CLI

3. (Optional) Create a Resource Group

Use the following script create a resource group in location eastus.

az group create --name ${AKS_RESOURCE_GROUP} \
                --location ${AKS_RESOURCE_GROUP_LOCATION}

4. (Optional) Create a Kubernetes cluster(AKS) in Azure

This script will create a 3 node cluster named pinot-quickstart for demo purposes.

Modify the parameters in the following example command with your resource group and cluster details:

az aks create --resource-group ${AKS_RESOURCE_GROUP} \
              --name ${AKS_CLUSTER_NAME} \
              --node-count 3

Once the command succeeds, the cluster is ready to be used.

5. Connect to an existing cluster

Run the following command to get the credential for the cluster pinot-quickstart that you just created:

az aks get-credentials --resource-group ${AKS_RESOURCE_GROUP} \
                       --name ${AKS_CLUSTER_NAME}

To verify the connection, run the following:

kubectl get nodes

6. Pinot quickstart

Follow this Kubernetes quickstart to deploy your Pinot demo.

7. Delete a Kubernetes Cluster

az aks delete --resource-group ${AKS_RESOURCE_GROUP} \
              --name ${AKS_CLUSTER_NAME}
