Azure AKS (Azure Kubernetes Service) is a managed Kubernetes service that lets you quickly deploy and manage clusters. Pricing for AKS depends on the number of nodes and the type of nodes you use. Here’s an example of how pricing might work:
Let’s say you want to create a new AKS cluster with three nodes. If you use the default node size, which is Standard_D2_v2, your monthly cost would be:
3 nodes * $0.10/hour * 744 hours/month = $22.32/month
Suppose you have a Kubernetes cluster with 3 nodes, each with 4 cores and 16GB of memory. If you run this cluster in the US East region, and you use it for 8,760 hours (1 year), your monthly cost would be approximately $1,013. This price includes the cost of the Kubernetes control plane, as well as the virtual machines that run your applications.
Keep in mind that this is just an example, and your actual costs may vary depending on your specific usage and other factors. To get a more accurate estimate of what you might expect to pay, you can use the Azure pricing calculator.
