Running Containers on Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS)

Amazon EKS makes it easy for you to run Kubernetes on AWS without needing to install, operate, and maintain your own Kubernetes control plane. In this course, you will learn container management and orchestration for Kubernetes using Amazon EKS. You will build an Amazon EKS cluster, configure the environment, deploy the cluster, and then add applications to your cluster. You will manage container images using Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR), learn how to automate application deployment, and deploy applications using CI/CD tools. Learn how to monitor and scale your environment by using metrics, logging, tracing, and horizontal/vertical scaling. You will learn how to design and manage a large container environment by designing for efficiency, cost, and resiliency. Configure AWS networking services to support the cluster and learn how to secure your Amazon EKS environment.

Duration: 3 Days

  • Basic knowledge of containers and Kubernetes
  • Completed the free online course Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) Primer
  • Ideally, completed an AWS Associate-level certification or have equivalent experience
  • At a bare minimum, AWS Technical Essentials (or equivalent experience with AWS)


  • Those who will provide container orchestration management in the AWS Cloud including: DevOps Engineers and Systems Administrators

Learning Objectives

  • 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
