In this lab, we will be creating a Kubernetes cluster using the Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS). We will create the cluster through the Cloud Shell!
You will learn how to easily create a cluster with just a few commands.
Understanding how to create your cluster through the command line will give you the advantage of having granular control over your cluster and understanding exactly what’s going on under the hood.
For this lab, you should have a basic understanding of Kubernetes. This way, you have the basic concepts to understand what we will be achieving in this lab!
Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:
- Create an EKS Cluster in the us-east-1 Region
Create a multi-node cluster in the us-east-1 Region.
- Deploy a Test Application to Mimic the Application
Using the editor, paste the application yaml template to deploy the app.
- Use the DNS Name of the Load Balancer to Test the Cluster
Use the DNS name of the load balancer service to test to see if the app works!
