Kubernetes Microservices Module 2

with ELK/ElasticStack, Prometheus and Grafana.

Equivalent to 3 days of a live training course

  • In this second module we take our workload in to the cloud and deploy to a live AWS cluster.
  • Using the Kops tool, we manage the cluster from a simple command line with very little manual AWS work.
  • We set up monitoring and logging using the ELK/ElasticStack, with Prometheus and Grafana.
  • And we set up an alerting system which feeds into a Slack Channel.
Some previous experience of AWS will be useful, but all concepts are explained. Great care must be taken that you delete any resources as soon as you finish with them.
