Start deploying your Kubernetes clusters

Let's say your company decided to run applications on Kubernetes. As a DevOps engineer, you have to deploy Kubernetes cluster(s) and deploy applications. You kind of know what Kubernetes is and how it works, but you don't have much experience deploying Kubernetes clusters.

Now, how do you proceed?

You can choose to -

    1. Deploy your own clusters (or)

    2. Deploy clusters using managed Kubernetes service

1. If you choose to deploy your own clusters, you have more decisions to make -

            ~ Which distribution to choose?

                       - K3s

                       - Rancher RKE

                       - Red Hat Openshift

                       - Typhoon

                       - …

            ~ Cloud or On-prem?

                        * Cloud

                                    - AWS EC2

                                    - GCP

                                    - Azure

                                    - ...

                        * On-prem

                                    - Bare metal

                                    - VMWare

                                    - Openstack

                                    - ...

            ~ Which installer to use?

                       - Kubespray

                       - Kops

                       - Minikube

                       - ...

2. If you choose to deploy clusters using managed Kubernetes service, which service to choose -

            - AWS EKS

            - Microsoft AKS

            - Google GKE

            - IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service

            - Oracle OKE

            - Digital Ocean

            - ...

It can be confusing and overwhelming with so many options to choose from.

Let’s say you go with the easiest option and choose AWS EKS, or maybe because one of the teams in your company is already using AWS.

Now, even though EKS is a hosted service provided by AWS, configuring EKS is not easy.

    ~ You have to decide which node types to use -

            - Managed

            - Self-managed

            - Fargate

    ~ How many node groups?

    ~ What IAM roles and policies have to be created for the cluster and nodes?

    ~ ...

How do you create the EKS cluster?

    ~ Manually via AWS Console?

    ~ Using eksctl?

    ~ Using Terraform?

Let's say you decide to go with Terraform. Now you need to figure out -

    # What are the best practices for Terraform code that can scale easily and be Production ready?

    # How can you make the process of deploying Kubernetes clusters fast, repeatable and simple?

That's a lot to handle, isn't it?

What if, there’s a service that lets you just define the cluster configuration and deploy Kubernetes clusters easily, repeatedly and quickly?

What if you could have a Kubernetes cluster deployment as a service within your company where -

            ~ You can create predefined configurations (called profiles) and control which users have access to them.

            ~ You can control which cloud regions the clusters are deployed to.

            ~ You can control which users can -

                     - Create profiles

                     - Deploy Kubernetes clusters

                     - Only view deployments

                     - Edit existing deployments

                     - Delete existing deployments
