Amazon EKS Training FAQs

  • What is Kubernetes?

    • Kubernetes (k8s) is an open-source orchestration system that facilitates deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications to run in many different cloud based environments.
  • What is EKS?

    • Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS) is Amazon's implementation of Kubernetes. EKS provides a fully managed Kubernetes control plane (master) with the ability to run clusters made up of EC2 instances.
  • Is Kubernetes a container engine?

    • No. Kubernetes is a container orchestration system. It still requires a container run-time, such as Docker to actually run the containers.
  • Does the course cover how to containerize applications?

    • No. The course provides a brief introduction to containers and Docker, but does not cover how to containerize applications or how to architect applications. The course instead focuses on how to leverage EKS to deploy and manage containers.
