Details

KubeSphere is an enterprise-grade and multitenant container platform with streamlined DevOps workflows. It has a developer-friendly web interface and can help enterprises develop robust platforms that contain common functions for enterprise Kubernetes environments.

The integration with Quick Start, created in collaboration with AWS, can be used to set up a highly available virtual private cloud architecture that spans across three availability zones.

According to AWS, this Quick Start sets up the following:

  • A highly available virtual private cloud (VPC) architecture that spans three Availability Zones. The VPC is configured with public and private subnets, according to AWS best practices, to provide you with your own virtual network on AWS.
  • In the public subnets:
    • Managed network address translation (NAT) gateways to allow outbound internet access for resources in the private subnets.
    • Linux bastion hosts in an Auto Scaling group to allow inbound Secure Shell (SSH) access to administer the KubeSphere platform and Amazon EKS environment.
  • In the private subnets:
    • Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances in an Auto Scaling group. KubeSphere core components and your applications run on worker nodes.
  • An Amazon EKS cluster, which provides the Kubernetes control plane.
  • AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles to help you securely control access to AWS resources.
  • Elastic Load Balancing to distribute incoming application or network traffic across multiple targets.

Deployment in Quick Start can be done by following the official guide, and it takes at least 40-50 minutes to run through successfully.

While running this Quick Start, the billing expenses are dependent on the CloudFormation templates, configuration parameters, and it is advisable to enable the AWS Cost and Usage Report for the proper cost optimization process. For any concerns and issues, AWS Quick Start is open-sourced so users can study the GitHub repository and approach the concept with best practices.

Lastly, the collaboration deal between AWS and Kubeshere is quite impactful in making the AWS experience better for the users.
