Consistent OIDC authentication across multiple EKS clusters using Kube-OIDC-Proxy

Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) authenticates users against IAM before they’re granted access to an EKS cluster. Access to each cluster is controlled by the aws-auth ConfigMap, a file that maps IAM users/roles to Kubernetes RBAC groups. In this guest post from Josh Van Leeuwen from Jetstack, we look at how we can use […]

Splitting an application’s logs into multiple streams: a Fluent tutorial

Not all logs are of equal importance. Some require real-time analytics, others simply need to be stored long term so that they can be analyzed if needed. In this tutorial, I will show three different methods by which you can “fork” a single application’s stream of logs into multiple streams which can be parsed, filtered, […]

architecture for continuous delivery with Spinnaker on Amazon EKS.

Continuous Delivery using Spinnaker on Amazon EKS

I work closely with partners, helping them to architect solutions on AWS for their customers. Customers running their microservices-based applications on Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) are looking for guidance on architecting complete end-to-end Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Deployment/Delivery (CD) pipelines using Jenkins and Spinnaker. The benefits of using Jenkins include that it […]

Distributed TensorFlow training using Kubeflow on Amazon EKS

Training heavy-weight deep neural networks (DNNs) on large datasets ranging from tens to hundreds of GBs often takes an unacceptably long time. Business imperatives force us to search for solutions that can reduce the training time from days to hours. Distributed data-parallel training of DNNs using multiple GPUs on multiple machines is often the right […]

Introducing fine-grained IAM roles for service accounts

Here at AWS we focus first and foremost on customer needs. In the context of access control in Amazon EKS, you asked in issue #23 of our public container roadmap for fine-grained IAM roles in EKS. To address this need, the community came up with a number of open source solutions, such as kube2iam, kiam, […]
