When it comes to Container Orchestration, there’s a good chance you may already be aware of Kubernetes, an open-source solution for automating the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications that aggregate the containers comprising an application into logical units allowing for simple management and discovery. You may also know of the AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service (AWS EKS), a managed Kubernetes service that enables you to run Kubernetes on AWS easily. Knowing about these things is not enough to leverage the best out of Kubernetes using AWS EKS; you must know about AWS EKS Best Practices.
In this blog, we will be looking at 10 AWS EKS Best Practices that will help you configure, deploy, use, and manage the Kubernetes Cluster on AWS for high security, reliability, availability, and more. We will also explain how and why you should save your EKS cluster as code.
