EC2 to EKS
Voyage Vista, a rapidly growing SaaS startup, required a scalable and reliable infrastructure solution to deploy their micro services based containerized application.
To meet their needs, the decision was made to implement an infrastructure based on Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS).
1. Motivation for Migration to AWS EKS
2. Solution Design and Implementation
Cluster Architecture:A multi-Availability Zone (AZ) EKS cluster is designed as it ensures high availability by spanning AZs and preventing single-point failures.
Application Deployment:Containerized applications are deployed to the EKS cluster using Kubernetes manifests or Helm charts. Deployment strategies such as rolling updates or blue/green deployments are implemented.
Networking:Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) is used to isolate the EKS cluster, connecting via AZ subnets and controlling traffic with security groups.
Security:IAM roles and policies are established to grant appropriate permissions to EKS resources. While network policies and security groups manage cluster access.
Automation:IaC tool, Terraform is used to define and manage EKS infrastructure, ensuring consistent deployments.
By implementing an EKS infrastructure, Voyage Vista achieved a scalable, highly available, and secure platform for deploying their microservices based containerized application. The automation and monitoring capabilities provided by the infrastructure increased operational efficiency and reduced downtime, resulting in improved customer satisfaction and business growth.
As a startup you may often opt for the quick and inexpensive AWS EC2-based infrastructure to kickstart your journey. However, as your business grows, it’s crucial to transition to a more robust solution.
