Running containers on Amazon elastic kubernetes service
Amazon EKS makes it easy for you to run Kubernetes on AWS without needing to install, operate, and maintain your own Kubernetes control plane.
In this three-day course, you'll learn container management and orchestration for Kubernetes using Amazon EKS. You'll build an Amazon EKS cluster, configure the environment, deploy the cluster, and add applications to your cluster.
Also discover how to manage container images using Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR) and learn how to automate application deployment. In addition, you'll deploy applications using CI/CD tools.
You'll review how to monitor and scale your environment by using metrics, logging, tracing, and horizontal/vertical scaling. Learn efficiency, cost, and resiliency by designing and managing a large container environment.
Lastly, explore configuring AWS networking services to support the cluster and learn how to secure your Amazon EKS environment.
Who should take this course
- Anyone who will provide container orchestration management in the AWS Cloud, including DevOps engineers and systems administrators
What you'll learn
- Review and examine containers, Kubernetes, and Amazon EKS fundamentals—and the impact of containers on workflows
- Build an Amazon EKS cluster by selecting the correct compute resources to support worker nodes
- Secure your environment with AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) authentication by creating an Amazon EKS service role for your cluster
- Deploy an application on the cluster, then publish container images to ECR and secure access via IAM policy
- And much more
What experience you'll need
- Completed Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) Primer
- Completed AWS Cloud Practitioner Essentials (or equivalent real-world experience)
- Basic Linux administration experience
- Basic network administration experience
- Basic knowledge of containers and microservices
In this course, you will learn to:
- Describe Kubernetes and Amazon EKS fundamentals and the impact of containers on workflows.
- Build an Amazon EKS cluster by selecting the correct compute resources to support worker nodes.
- Secure your environment with AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) authentication and Kubernetes Role Based Access Control (RBAC) authorization.
- Deploy an application on the cluster. Publish container images to Amazon ECR and secure access via IAM policy.
- Deploy applications using automated tools and pipelines. Create a GitOps pipeline using
- Collect monitoring data through metrics, logs, and tracing with AWS X-Ray and identify metrics for performance tuning. Review scenarios where bottlenecks require the best scaling approach using
horizontal or vertical scaling.
- Assess the tradeoffs between efficiency, resiliency, and cost and the impact of tuning for one overthe others. Describe and outline a holistic, iterative approach to optimizing your environment. Design for cost, efficiency, and resiliency.
- Configure AWS networking services to support the cluster. Describe how Amazon Virtual PrivateCloud (VPC) supports Amazon EKS clusters and simplifies inter-node communications. Describe the function of the VPC Container Network Interface (CNI). Review the benefits of a service mesh.
- Upgrade your Kubernetes, Amazon EKS, and third party tools.
