Deployment steps

The procedure for an end-to-end deployment of Amazon EKS consists of the following steps. For detailed instructions, follow the links for each step.

  • Step 1. Sign in to your AWS account

    This involves signing in to your AWS account, choosing a region, creating a key pair, and requesting increases for account limits, if necessary.

  • Step 2. Launch the Quick Start In this step, you’ll launch the AWS CloudFormation template into your AWS account, specify parameter values, and create the stack. The Quick Start provides separate templates for Single-AZ and Multi-AZ deployment scenarios as well as end-to-end deployment and deployment into an existing VPC.

  • Step 3. Test the deployment This step involves connecting to the bastion host and confirming that the nodes have successfully connected to the cluster.
