Since EKS needs to manage most of the classic compute resources used in an AWS environment, it makes sense to provide a separate VPC for EKS to manage. In this video, learn how to use a predefined template to build out the required capabilities for the EKS VPC.
- [Instructor] So now our cluster is active.…We can actually see some of the key cluster information…and this is the information that we could collect…to create our own Kubernetes kubeconfig file.…We don't actually have to do that.…We're going to use the AWS CLI to do that in the next module.…In order for EKS to actually launch its environment,…it needs to be able to create resources…in a constrained environment and that is a VPC in Amazon.…In this module if you do an ls,…we have a create resources file.…We're going to do more on our create resources file here.…
You see the very first thing we have is a note…and that is that EKS is only supported…in three regions today.…A us-east-1, us-west-2 and US or sorry, eu-west-1.…So US Virginia, Oregon or in Europe Ireland…are the three regions to support EKS today.…So when we go and create our template based deployment…of our VPC using this S3 template which I want…to actually capture here real quick.…We want to make sure that we're in one of these three regions…because that's the same region that…
