Create Elastic Kubernetes Cluster
Amazon EKS Prerequisites
Before you create your actual Elastic Kubernetes cluster, you need to make sure you have the basic requirements ready. These requirements include an authenticated AWS account that has administrative privileges to create and manage an EKS cluster. Follow the steps mentioned in Amazon's documentation on Prerequisites of Getting Started with AWS Console to get your cluster ready with the required prerequisites.
There are some important notions here that you need to take under consideration. They are:
- You need to install kubectl command-line utility to communicate with the EKS cluster API server.
- You need to install the latest Amazon Web Services CLI to manage your EKS cluster from your client machine.
Create Amazon EKS Cluster
Once you have the prerequisites in place, you can create your cluster inside Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service.
Access the Amazon EKS Console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/eks/home#/clusters.
Follow the steps thoroughly explained in Amazon's documentation on Getting Started with Amazon EKS Cluster.
After your EKS cluster is up and running, you can start setting up the resources required to deploy and access NCache servers and clients inside your EKS cluster. See next chapter on Create NCache Resources.
