  • Basic Linux administration experience
  • Basic network administration experience
  • Basic knowledge of containers and microservices

Skills Gained

  • 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.
  • Configure AWS networking services to support the cluster. Describe how Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (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.
