>> Hey everybody, and welcome back.
00:00
In this lecture we're going to talk
00:00
about Elastic Kubernetes Service.
00:00
In this lecture we're going
00:00
to be defining what EKS means,
00:00
and we're going to
00:00
hopefully gets you ready so you can be able to
00:00
describe how EKS is
00:00
different from the other
00:00
container type services out there.
00:00
So Amazon EKS,
00:00
Elastic Kubernetes Service,
00:00
is an alternative to ECS.
00:00
Now, this goes back to
00:00
the discussion of these containers,
00:00
Docker containers versus Kubernetes containers.
00:00
Kubernetes technically, like an orchestration service,
00:00
but they do have
00:00
a container feature which you can leverage.
00:00
When you launch Kubernetes,
00:00
you're launching a cluster on AWS.
00:00
This is going to be
00:00
a open-source environment that
00:00
you can deploy, you can scale,
00:00
and the management of the containers,
00:00
the containerized applications that you're
00:00
putting inside.
00:00
With EKS, you can manage your service and you
00:00
run your containers on both
00:00
on the Cloud or on-premises as well.
00:00
You can deploy serverless containers.
00:00
You can deploy worker nodes for
00:00
your EKS clusters with EC2.
00:00
You can run your Kubernetes applications
00:00
and you even get like a dashboard and the AWS console
00:00
that allows you to explore
00:00
all the different types of Kubernetes
00:00
apps that you are running in real time.
00:00
You can see the metrics and all of that great stuff.
00:00
There's actually a lot of really good information out
00:00
there that I do recommend that you leverage,
00:00
if you are interested in learning more about the service.
00:00
You're not going to see a lot on containers in this exam.
00:00
You're just going to have to understand
00:00
what these services are.
00:00
What I mean by this, I mean Elastic Kubernetes,
00:00
Elastic Container Service,
00:00
stuff like that Fargate,
00:00
that all that good stuff.
00:00
As you transition into the developer certification,
00:00
it gets a lot more intense so you are going to see
00:00
a lot more questions on these particular services.
00:00
And also in the SysOps and DevOps certifications as well.
00:00
That being said, now you understand what EKS is,
00:00
you know what an ECS is and you know what Fargate is,
00:00
I'm going to go ahead and wrap this up and
00:00
we'll move on to the next lecture.
00:00
To summarize, we did an overview of
00:00
Elastic Kubernetes Service and now you
00:00
know a brief comparison between EKS and ECS.
00:00
Let's go ahead and close this out,
00:00
and I'll see you in the next lecture.
