Deploy SQL Server on Azure Kubernetes Service cluster via Helm Charts – on a windows client machine!

A brief snapshot of the conversation that my colleague and I had a couple of weeks ago:

Colleague« I am new to Kubernetes and Linux world and was hoping if I could deploy SQL Server using helm chart from my Helm on my windows client and a managed kubernetes cluster service like Azure kubernetes service cluster (AKS)? »

Me« Yes, you can! »

Colleague: « Great! Can you share articles or guidance to do that so I could follow those? »

Me: « hmm.. For Helm refer this.. for Kubernetes refer this.. For SQL Server deployment using helm on kubernetes refer this.. « 

and that’s when I noticed there wasn’t a single stop end to end
