Lab description

Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) is a hosted Kubernetes offering from AWS. EKS manages the control plane for you, and its infrastructure is highly available and scalable by default. Terraform's declarative syntax allows you to describe your desired EKS cluster state in a single Terraform configuration file.

Provisioning and troubleshooting Terraform modules is a common task for cloud architects, and this hands-on challenge will test your ability to do so with an EKS cluster.

This challenge will test your practical ability to modify a solution in a production-like AWS environment. You will be presented with a task and set of requirements you must fulfill to pass the challenge.

This is a real environment, which means you can prove your knowledge in an applied way, substituting multiple-choice questions for a dynamic performance-based exam situation.
