Securing Kubernetes applications with AWS App Mesh and cert-manager

While working with customers on their projects, I often hear “I want to secure all my traffic with granular encryption-in-transit, close to application code, but decouple security from it.” That’s where AWS App Mesh can help. In this blog, I will briefly discuss how to apply some of the Well Architected Framework Security Pillar design […]

Introducing security groups for pods

Security groups, acting as instance level network firewalls, are among the most important and commonly used building blocks in any AWS cloud deployment. It came as no surprise to us that integrating security groups with Kubernetes pods emerged as one of the most highly requested Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) features, as seen on […]

Creating Kubernetes Auto Scaling Groups for Multiple Availability Zones

Kubernetes is a scalable container orchestrator that helps you build fault-tolerant, cloud native applications. It can handle automatic container placement, scale up and down, and provision resources for your containers to run. While Kubernetes can take care of many things, it can’t solve problems it doesn’t know about. Usually these are called unknown unknowns and […]

Enabling cross-account access to Amazon EKS cluster resources

Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) is a managed service that makes it easy for you to run Kubernetes on AWS without needing to stand up or maintain your own Kubernetes control plane. The recent launches of managed node groups and Amazon EKS on AWS Fargate removes the need to provision and manage infrastructure for pods. Kubernetes […]

Kubernetes Logging powered by AWS for Fluent Bit

Centralized logging is an instrumental component of running and managing Kubernetes clusters at scale. Developers need access to logs for debugging and monitoring applications, operations teams need access for monitoring applications, and security needs access for monitoring. These teams have different requirements for processing and storage of logs. In this blog post, we will look […]

Using ALB Ingress Controller with Amazon EKS on Fargate

In December 2019, we announced the ability to use Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service to run Kubernetes pods on AWS Fargate. Fargate eliminates the need for you to create or manage EC2 instances for your Kubernetes applications. When your pods start, Fargate automatically allocates compute resources on-demand to run them. Fargate is great for running and […]

Help us write a new chapter for Gitops, Kubernetes, and Open Source collaboration

Introduction The Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) team sees the ecosystem around automated software deployment as a technology frontier ripe with potential for groundbreaking innovation. Over the last twenty years, the way in which developers deploy and manage their applications has changed dramatically. Technology improvements in packaging, automation, and virtualization as well as shifts in […]

Using sidecar injection on Amazon EKS with AWS App Mesh

AWS App Mesh works on the sidecar pattern where you must add containers to extend the behavior of existing containers. Kubernetes offers mutating admission controllers that allow operations teams to automate sidecar injection. In this post, I discuss the basics of the sidecar pattern and Kubernetes admission controllers and demonstrate how the App Mesh Sidecar […]
