Kubernetes on AWS

Run Kubernetes with ease using scalable, highly available virtual machine infrastructure, community-backed service integrations and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS).

AWS Kubernetes and DoiT

Kubernetes is the de facto standard for container orchestration, but it can be difficult to master. This is because it defines a complex infrastructure so that it can make applications simple. The application simply has to communicate with well-defined APIs for the services it requires.

However, AWS Kubernetes makes it easier to negotiate the challenges. With Kubernetes on AWS, you can manage the infrastructure yourself with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), or use Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) and get an automatically provisioned, managed Kubernetes control plane. Whichever path you choose, the result is powerful, community-backed integrations to AWS services including Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) and service discovery.

Understanding Kubernetes on AWS

The two key ways to use Kubernetes on AWS are to run it yourself on Amazon EC2 virtual machine instances or use the Amazon EKS service.

A managed Kubernetes service for running Kubernetes in the AWS cloud and on-premises data centers, Amazon EKS automatically manages the availability and scalability of the Kubernetes control plane nodes that take care of such important tasks as scheduling containers, managing application availability and storing cluster data.

With Amazon EKS, you can fully leverage your AWS infrastructure’s performance, scale, reliability and availability and implement integrations with a range of AWS networking and security services. It also enables access to other AWS services such as IAM, AutoScaling and CloudWatch.
Learning how to manage all of this can be challenging. In fact, the more you learn, the more you discover how much more there is to learn. That’s where DoiT comes in. Our team has the skills and experience to guide you on best practices and advanced techniques around AWS Kubernetes.
