Kubernetes made easier: Explore the AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service

Presenter: Michael Forrester
Recording date: April 29, 2020
Duration: 1.5 hours

Description: Kubernetes is all the rage nowadays with pundits exclaiming its multi-cloud and DevOps-native attributes. But what if you are new to the Kubernetes landscape and are already using AWS? When AWS first released its Elastic Kubernetes Service in June 2018, it was an underwhelming release that didn’t add much value to a plain vanilla K8s installation. Fast forward to 2020 and the Elastic Kubernetes Service has made incredible strides in features and value-add. With the recent addition of Fargate as a launch type, EKS has transformed into a most hassle-free service that is supported by an amazing surge of adoption in 2019 per recent research. Come and explore this rich K8s service with a short demo highlighting how quickly and easily you can deploy a production-grade cluster on AWS.
