CloudOps for Azure provides a way to run Elastic Path Commerce in Microsoft Azure by utilizing the Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), Azure Database for MySQL, and other services, such as Jenkins and Nexus, which run inside the Kubernetes cluster.
The goal is to provide an environment which looks like the following:
In the preceding diagram, there are two deployments of the Elastic Path stack: one in the Author namespace and one in the Live namespace. These namespaces refer to the environments that they provide. The intent of an author environment is to create and update catalog content. The live environment is intended to serve live catalog data and handle API calls.
For more information about the roles and details on the functionality provided by each of the Pods in the namespaces, refer to the Elastic Path Commerce documentation.
