Running Containers on Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS)

Running container on Amazon EKS course

Course description

Without having to build, manage, and maintain your own Kubernetes control plane, Amazon EKS makes it simple for you to run Kubernetes on AWS. You will discover how to use Amazon EKS for Kubernetes container management and orchestration in this course.

You will construct an Amazon EKS cluster, set up the surroundings, deploy the cluster, and finally include applications. You will learn how to automate application deployment and use Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR) to manage container images. Applications will be released utilizing CI/CD techniques.

You will discover how to use metrics, logging, tracing, and horizontal and vertical scaling to monitor and scale your environment—designing for effectiveness, affordability, and resilience will teach you how to create and maintain an extensive container ecosystem. To support the cluster, in this course of Running Containers On Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service, you will establish AWS networking services and learn how to protect your Amazon EKS environment.


Here’s what this AWS course will include:

  • Instructor lectures
  • Group presentations
  • Hands-on labs
  • Demonstrations

Course Objectives

Here’s what you’ll learn in this course: 

  • Describe the principles of Amazon EKS and Kubernetes and the effects of containers on workflows. 
  • By choosing the appropriate computational resources to support worker nodes, construct an Amazon EKS cluster. 
  • To secure your environment, utilize Kubernetes Role Based Access Control (RBAC) authorization with AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) authentication. 
  • Install a program on the cluster. Upload container images to Amazon ECR, then use IAM policies to control access. 
  • Utilize pipelines and automated methods to deploy apps. Use WeaveFlux to construct a GitOps pipeline. 
  • To find metrics for performance optimization, utilize AWS X-Ray to gather monitoring data from metrics, logs, and tracing. Examine situations when bottlenecks call for the optimal horizontal or vertical growth strategy.
  • Analyze the trade-offs between cost, resilience, and efficiency, as well as the effects of prioritizing one over the others. Describe and sketch a comprehensive, iterative strategy for improving your surroundings—plan with cost, effectiveness, and resilience in mind. 
  • AWS networking services should be configured to accommodate the cluster. Describe the support and ease of inter-node communication provided by Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) for Amazon EKS clusters. Describe the VPC Container Network Interface’s purpose (CNI). Look at the advantages of a service mesh. 
  • Upgrade Amazon EKS, Kubernetes, and other technologies.
