About this video
Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) is a managed Kubernetes service with hardened security and fast delivery. Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) is a managed service and certified Kubernetes conformant to run Kubernetes on AWS and on-premises.
In this course, you will learn to deploy applications on EKS and AKS Kubernetes clusters with CI/CD pipelines using Helm charts. You will start with the basics of how to set up a Jenkins server for CI/CD in the EKS cluster. This also includes installing and configuring Docker and Maven plugins in the Jenkins server. You will understand how to set up the EKS Kubernetes cluster in AWS and create an IAM role for the management host. Moving on, you will understand Helm, Helm charts, and how to create a Helm chart.
In the other part of the course, you will understand what a metric server is and how to configure a metric server. You will also learn to deploy an application with HPA for high CPU usage. You will explore how to access the AKS cluster from the local machine and will wrap up the course with an introduction to Elasticsearch Fluentd and Kibana and learn to configure Elasticsearch Fluentd and Kibana in the AKS cluster.
By the end of this course, you will have built a CI/CD pipeline to deploy applications or microservices on AKS and EKS Kubernetes clusters.
