Being of a highly complex nature, container orchestration platforms (such as Kubernetes) benefit from being packed into a managed service.

Fortunately, there are a range of supporting products available that can improve your overall experience with productionising AKS.

Early dip into using Azure Sentinel and Fusion

Microsoft have recently announced their cloud-native SEIM tool with built in AI capabilities with a public preview now available. It certainly feels fresh out of the oven as documentation around the product is still lightweight (but being added to at a rapid rate!) and not a lot of collateral just yet around the mechanics of how one should leverage this tool.
