Cloud Computing technologies are primarily used to develop advanced applications using modern technologies. Microsoft Azure is a leader in cloud computing and offers many cloud services, including Azure VM, Azure Storage, Azure Fileshare, Azure Function App, Azure Data Factory, Azure Storage (blob and fileshare), Azure Storage (blob and fileshare), Azure Storage (blob and fileshare), Azure Storage (blob andfileshare), Azure Storage (blob andfileshare), Azure Function App and many others.
Cloud architects face many challenges when making architecture decisions that are cost-effective, resilient, and optimized. This article will help you understand the factors to consider when making the right decisions. We will discuss the various options and show real-life examples of how to deploy a WordPress application on Azure cloud. This cloud will be highly available, and scalable.
Approach 1: Highly Scalable and Available WordPress on Azure Kubernetes Service
Azure Kubernetes Service, a.k.a. AKS
Azure Kubernetes Service AKS:
Azure offers managed Kubernetes service (AKS) where they manage Kubernetes master nodes by themselves. This provides benefits such as auto upgrades and self-healing. This makes it easier for developers to debug. This is in addition to optimizing resource utilization and scaling massively quickly with ease.
Let’s talk about Kubernetes details, which can be used to deploy our WordPress app.
A deployment provides details that allow you to update Pods or Replicasets in a declarative manner. You describe the desired state, and create a replica set that removes all existing resources and adopts a brand new one.
Replicaset allows you to keep a stable number of Pods on the go and ensures that there are always enough Pods available.
A Service allows you to expose your pods for network service. It solves the problem of service discovery being modified by providing the IP addresses and DNS names of the pods with load balancing capabilities.
An API object that allows you to manage access from outside to services in the cluster, such as HTTP. It also provides features like SSL termination, Path-based routing and load balancing.
In simple words: It will allow the service to expose via HTTPS and HTTPS to external world rules that can be controlled for routing.
A persistent volume (PV), a chunk of storage that can be provisioned with storage classes like node and pod as resources in a cluster, is a storage class such as storage classes like storage classes node and pod. These plugins are similar to Volume with lifecycle and pods can use them independently using PV. It can be implemented by capturing the configuration of NFS, iSCSI, or a cloud-provider-specific storage system
A persistent volume claim (PVC) is a request for storage by pod. Pods use node resources, while PVCs use PV resource. Pods can be equipped with specific CPU and memory, and claims can be as small or large as you like.

Storage options for applications in Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS).
We can use Persistent Volume and Persistent Claims to manage our WordPress web and MySQL data.
Azure offers two storage classes options:
Can be created using Kubernetes DataDisk resource
Azure Premium storage is backed by SSDs (suitable for production workloads).
Azure Standard storage is supported by regular HDDs.
It can only be mounted as ReadWriteOnce and is only available to one pod. Azure FIles can be used to bypass this limitation.
They are mounted as SMB3.0 shares backed up by an A
