Introducing AKS (managed Kubernetes) and Azure Container Registry improvements | Blog | Microsoft Azure

"While Azure Container Service has been available since 2015 with support for multiple container orchestrators, these new features and innovative pricing are focused on Kubernetes, which has emerged as the open source standard for container orchestration. Kubernetes unique community involvement and its portability makes it an ideal orchestrator to standardize on. This comes as no surprise to Microsoft. Brendan Burns, co-creator of Kubernetes, now leads Azure’s container efforts. Earlier this year Microsoft acquired Deis, a company at the center of Kubernetes innovation."

Microsoft Release Preview of Azure Container Service (AKS), a New Managed Kubernetes Service @InfoQ

"Microsoft have released a preview version of a new managed Kubernetes service, "Azure Container Service (AKS)", which is a separate product from the existing ACS that offers support for multiple orchestrators Kubernetes, Mesos DC/OS and Docker Swarm. AKS features an Azure-hosted control plane, automated upgrades, self-healing, user configurable scaling, and a "simple user experience for both developers and cluster operators". At launch, AKS will default to using Kubernetes 1.7.7, the software's latest stable release, and customers can opt into using the new 1.8 beta if they choose to do so."
