What you'll learn


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 course, you will learn container management and orchestration for Kubernetes using Amazon EKS.

You will build an Amazon EKS cluster, configure the environment, deploy the cluster, and then add applications to your cluster. You will manage container images using Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR) and learn how to automate application deployment. You will deploy applications using CI/CD tools. You will learn how to monitor and scale your environment by using metrics, logging, tracing, and horizontal/vertical scaling. You will learn how to design and manage a large container environment by designing for efficiency, cost, and resiliency. You will configure AWS networking services to support the cluster and learn how to secure your Amazon EKS environment.

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 WeaveFlux.
  • 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 over the others. Describe and outline a holistic, iterative approach to optimizing your environment.
  • Design for cost, efficiency, and resiliency.
