August 2020 Online Meetup - Rancher 2.5 Preview - EKS Lifecycle Management
Hosted cloud provider Kubernetes services like EKS alleviate the operational burden of Kubernetes. The cluster operator is still responsible for upgrades and all the day 2 operations for the applications running on the cluster.
In this meetup we'll discuss how Rancher can help manage the lifecycle of EKS clusters, and will walk through importing existing and provisioning new EKS clusters through Rancher. We will also look at how to deploy Rancher logging and monitoring onto the cluster to handle day 2 operations on the cluster.
What we will cover:
- Deploying new EKS clusters
- Importing and managing existing EKS clusters
- Monitoring applications on the cluster
- Capturing cluster logs
