Table of contents Introduction Using kubectl, helm and draft Configure Helm Configure Draft Creating an application Investigating what actually happens Exiting the container Conclusion Feedback Prerequisites In the previous tutorial I used Azure to provision the infrastructure required to run a Kubernetes cluster. If you don’t have an Azure subscription you can create a free account and get $200 for 12 months. I deployed 4 D2_V2 VMs (1 master + 3 agents) with Linux and will cost approximately $13 - $14 / day, but you can change the type of the VM to be D1_V2 in the cluster definition, and the cost will go down to $6 / day.
