The Introduction to AWS EKS course is designed to aid and equip those, with a basic understanding of web-based software development, to know how to quickly launch a new EKS Kubernetes cluster and deploy, manage and measure its attributes.
In this course, you will learn how to utilize a range of new skills from, understanding how EKS implements and deploys clusters into a VPC and leverages ELBs to expose Kubernetes services, to gaining the ability to use, control, manage and measure an EKS Kubernetes cluster deployed application.
This course is made up of 4 in-depth demonstrations that, at the end of the course, will enable you to deploy an end-to-end microservices web-based application into an EKS Kubernetes cluster.
