Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS) is a new managed service for running Kubernetes on AWS. This session will provide an overview of Amazon EKS, why we built it, and how it works. Attendees will learn about how IAM roles can be used for authentication with the cluster using kubectl and assigned to pods at runtime. Cluster visibility using CloudWatch logs and Cloud Trail will be explained. Pod networking using the open source CNI plugin as well as the AWS CLI commands to manage the cluster will be explained and shown. Attendees will learn how about master nodes autoscaling and manual scaling of worker nodes. Finally, the session will explain how an application can be easily deployed to this service maintaining upstream Kubernetes experience. This session will provide different ways how attendees can engage with AWS using different open source channels.
