AWS Containers

Duration : 3 Days (24 Hours)

AWS Containers Course Overview:

Amazon EKS simplifies Kubernetes management on AWS by eliminating the need for self-installed control planes. The Running Containers on Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) course focuses on container orchestration using Amazon EKS. Participants will learn how to build an EKS cluster, deploy applications, manage container images with Amazon ECR, automate deployments with CI/CD tools, and scale environments. The course also covers efficient design, cost optimization, networking configuration, monitoring, and securing the Amazon EKS environment. By the end of the course, participants will be equipped to run containers effectively on Amazon EKS and harness its advantages for AWS container management.
