Load testing your workload running on Amazon EKS with Locust

Introduction More and more customers are using the Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) to run their workloads. This is why it is essential to have a process to test your EKS cluster so that you can identify weaknesses upfront and optimize your cluster before you open it to the public. Load testing focuses on […]

Three things to consider when implementing Mutual TLS with AWS App Mesh

Mutual Transport Layer Security (mTLS) is an extension of TLS, where both the client and server leverage X.509 digital certificates to authenticate each other before starting communications. Both parties present certificates to each other and validate the other’s certificate. The key difference from any usual TLS communication is that when using mutual TLS, each client must […]

Diving into IAM Roles for Service Accounts

A common challenge architects face when designing a Kubernetes solution on AWS is how to grant containerized workload permissions to access an AWS service or resource. AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) provides fine-grained access control where you can specify who can access which AWS service or resources, ensuring the principle of least privilege. The challenge […]

Continuous Delivery of Amazon EKS Clusters Using AWS CDK and CDK Pipelines

Customers are looking for ways to automate the deployment of their Amazon EKS clusters across different versions, environments, accounts, and Regions. The deployment of these clusters involves tasks like creating your clusters with desired networking and logging configuration, selecting Amazon EKS add-ons versions, and, once it is ready, deploying other infrastructure components. This post shows […]
