Kubernetes Operations (kops) Part 1: Creating A Kubernetes Cluster In AWS

The video that follows is based on the material from The DevOps 2.3 Toolkit: Kubernetes.


The DevOps 2.3 Toolkit: Kubernetes

The article you just read is an extract from The DevOps 2.3 Toolkit: Kubernetes.

The goal of the book is not to convince you to adopt Kubernetes but to provide a detailed overview of its features. I want you to become confident in your Kubernetes knowledge and only then choose whether to embrace it. That is, unless you already made up your mind and stumbled upon this book in search of Kubernetes guidance.

The book is about running containers at scale and not panicking when problems arise. It is about the present and the future of software deployment and monitoring. It’s about embracing the challenges and staying ahead of the curve.

Give it a try and let me know what you think.

    Very informative tutor but getting and issue:
    k8s-specs ->aws ec2 describe-availability-zones –region $AWS_DEFAULT_REGION
    An error occurred (UnauthorizedOperation) when calling the DescribeAvailabilityZones operation: You are not authorized to perform this operation.

    Also,
    k8s-specs ->aws iam add-user-to-group –user-name kops –group-name kops
    An error occurred (AccessDenied) when calling the AddUserToGroup operation: User: arn:aws:iam::765879929435:user/kops is not authorized to perform: iam:AddUserToGroup on resource: group kops

    I do have a .aws config file and credentials file that has different credentials than what we created in the command line.

    Thank you

      Most likely, the problem is that the credentials you’re using do not have sufficient permissions to perform those operations. Is that a corporate or a private account? If it’s a corporate one, you might want to ask your administrator to give you more permissions.
