Below are the options for installing Dataiku on Azure:

  1. From Azure Marketplace
  2. Cloud Stack Installation on Azure

At this point, the recommendation is to set up Dataiku on an Azure VM machine

Hi @ashahbazi,

Great! I recommend reading through our dedicated Azure Documentation as well as our documentation on using DSS with containerized execution on AKS as a fully managed Kubernetes solution. To get a more broad understanding of how interaction works between DSS and containers, please see Elastic AI: Concepts.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Thanks!

Jordan

Here is a video explaining the Dataiku architecture:

More info on this page: https://knowledge.dataiku.com/latest/courses/mlops/prod-concepts/dataiku-architecture-summ.html

In a nutshell you have 3 node types: Designer, Automation and API. Neither of these nodes run on Azure App Service or Azure Container Instances, they need dedicated VMs. Having said that it is possible to execute certain Dataiku workloads in Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). 

See the following documentation to understand how that works:
