  • How are most EKS clusters deployed?
    7 projects | /r/kubernetes | 22 May 2023
    If you want somewhat viable setup - I'd go for terraform-aws-modules (Anton did an awesome job), and aws-ia blueprints, especially those multi-tenant ones.
  • I am stuck on learning how to provision K8s in AWS. Security groups? ALB? ACM? R53?

  • Docker for Rancher?

    I'd suggest move from rancher to EKS Anywhere and the respective Cluster API providers... Self-managed node pools on top of bottlerocket can be established using common terraform-aws-eks module, otherwise.
  • Why is EKS (and AWS in general) so much more convoluted than GKE/GCP?
    5 projects | /r/devops | 16 Oct 2022
    If you're looking for a more "batteries included" EKS setup, and you're using Terraform, take a look at the terraform-aws-eks module. It's still not quite as simple as GKE, but it'll get you quite a bit of the way there - especially when it comes to, e.g., creating the OIDC trusts and IAM policies for various components like the Cluster Autoscaler.

    I would highly recommend taking a look at the Terraform module https://github.com/terraform-aws-modules/terraform-aws-eks.
  • Terraform Module Template
    13 projects | /r/devops | 19 Jul 2022
    You are right for a public module as a git repo, but I rarely use public modules. Most are overally complicated and low on readability. Also the greater complexity leads to more bugs. I am also not a fan of using modules directly from upstream git repository. I don't trust them to not break it or move it. The main exception I have found to not using public modules is https://github.com/terraform-aws-modules/terraform-aws-eks. EKS is inherently so complex that is worth using a very complex module.
  • [EKS] coredns still requires a patch to remove the ec2 compute type annotation if you'l want a fargate only deployment.

  • Terraform Modules for EKS
    3 projects | /r/kubernetes | 3 Jul 2022
    As I'll soon need to spin up an EKS cluster from scratch due to a new role, I've been looking into what my options are for speeding up the process of provisioning the necessary infrastructure and add-ons to run the usual workflows. Most notably, I've come across the eks-blueprints project and the terraform-aws-eks module, the latter of which seems to be older and more widely adopted because of that. The plan is to run the entire thing on Fargate, as I'm the only architect on the team and due to other responsibilities would rather run everything without having to manage EC2 instances and node groups.
  • Anyone have experience with using launch templates for EKS node groups?
    2 projects | /r/aws | 1 Jul 2022
    Question - why not use https://github.com/terraform-aws-modules/terraform-aws-eks ?
    2 projects | /r/aws | 1 Jul 2022
    Yes, basically you need to implement this https://github.com/terraform-aws-modules/terraform-aws-eks/blob/master/templates/linux_user_data.tpl
