⚠️ Deprecation notice

This preview integration of IoT Edge 1.x and Kubernetes will not be made generally available, and is no longer supported. The recommended way to run IoT Edge 1.x on Kubernetes is noted in the product's official docs

IoT Edge on Kubernetes uses the same Docker-based application model built around edge modules as a single device with Docker engine.

However, configuring the modules to run on Kubernetes involve a number of differences compared to a Docker engine environment and require a grasp of a few k8s-specific concepts.

The content in the section highlights the major differences to be aware of and best practice recommendations informed by real-world customer deployments.
