In this course, you will learn to:

 Review and examine containers, 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 by creating an Amazon EKS service role for your cluster

 Deploy an application on the cluster. Publish container images to ECR and secure access via IAM policy.

 Automate and deploy applications, examine automation tools and pipelines. Create a GitOps pipeline using WeaveFlux.

 Collect monitoring data through metrics, logs, 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 impact for tuning one over the other. Describe and outline a holistic, iterative approach to optimizing your environment. Design for cost, efficiency, and resiliency

Configure the AWS networking services to support the cluster. Describe how EKS/Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) functions and simplifies inter-node communications. Describe the function of VPC Container Network Interface (CNI). Review the benefits of a service mesh.

 Upgrade your Kubernetes, Amazon EKS, and third party tools.
