Finally, with all of the basic parts covered, you can trigger the setup of an EKS environment. The system can be built around a small system to begin with, as the ability to scale the EKS cluster is one of the benefits of using the managed service model.
- [Instructor] In order to create our EKS cluster…we're going to use the web UI.…If we do a listing of our module directory here,…we can see we have a create cluster control file.…We're going to do more create and hit tab.…And here we're going to point us to the EKS console…and we're going to jump there in just a second.…We're going to get all of the information that we need…from our pull-down menu items for the console-based approach…but we're also going to then have to configure the CLI…and communicate with our Kubernetes clusters.…
So we'll do that after the cluster is up.…The process might actually take as much as 10 or 15 minutes,…so just be aware of that…when you're launching your cluster for the first time.…We also do want to make sure…that we're using the right setup parameters,…even though they're in pull-downs.…So we'll look at the output.txt file,…just so that we can do a quick visual comparison.…So if we cat our output.txt, which is up a directory,…we'll remember that we have vpcid,…just grabbing the last couple of characters 849e…
