Kubernetes: Provisioning with Terraform and kOps

kOps is one of the easiest and most effective ways to get a Kubernetes cluster up and running. It can generate Terraform configurations, too, which can then be applied with the terraform plan and terraform apply tools. In this course, cloud and software consultant Carlos Nunez provides a focused reference describing how to provision and manage Kubernetes clusters with the integrated power of Terraform and kOps. Explore the challenges of installing Kubernetes and its prerequisites: Docker, kubectl, and Terraform. Along the way, Carlos gives detailed instructions for deploying Kubernetes into the cloud, including how to define AWS resources with Terraform, prepare AWS for kOps, correctly install kOps, create a cluster with kOps, apply the cluster configuration file for kOps, and perform smoke tests for quality assurance.
