From the official documentation we have the original definition of Cluster API, it brings a declarative, Kubernetes-style APIs to cluster creation, configuration and management. The API itself is shared across multiple cloud providers allowing for true Azure hybrid deployments of Kubernetes.
This cluster was generated using the
make create-workload-cluster from the CAPZ repository.
The diagram describes the CRDs and objects created related to this Workload cluster inside Azure.
It’s possible to list the objects inside the management cluster.
List the resources from both the Cluster API and Azure provider groups.
CAPZ will manage through the controllers the assets created inside Azure. First is created a Resource Group with your cluster name on it.
Looking the vNET and subnets created on it.
As seen on CAPZ docs. When providing a vnet, it is required to also provide the two subnets that should be used for control planes and nodes.
The control-plane (apiserver) is accessible externally by a public IP load balancer by default, it’s required a few tweaks to make it private!
On the target node, check the nodes IPs, they MUST match the ones in the vnet subnets, NotReady because the cluster has no CNI installed by default!
❯ kubectl get nodes -o wide

The machine deployments works the same way as a Deployment object on the
scale usage. New VMs are being (de)allocated
