Kubernetes on AWS gets a boost with Quick Start

AWS and Heptio launched the Kubernetes quick start this week, fueling expectations among IT professionals that Amazon EC2 Container Service will be next for integration.

The new quick start, a collaboration between architects and AWS Heptio's start-up solutions, encourages companies to use Kubernetes. AWS displays quick startup along with other Start Quick Reference Architectures for products such as data center dock, cook, puppet, Ansible Tower and more. Quick Start includes CloudFormation Template Kubernetes for Kubernetes Clusters. It also includes automatic scaling, a community utility to Kubernetes in AWS - called poly - still does not support.

However, the quick start does not include several groups of nodes, said Michael Bishop, who is chief technology officer at Alfa Vertex Inc., a FinTech company in New York using Kubernetes in multicloud deployment.

"It seems to impose a network stack that is not necessary - I performed kops K8S clusters in AWS perfectly without calico or weave," added the Bishop

The founder of Heptio recognized the limitations of the quick start on a blog, saying that he is the most suitable for the development of flow and use of small equipment for now.

"This is not a formal product, but this is a first step to operating Kubernetes well in AWS, and this is the first time AWS solution architects really put the effort into a pure Kubernetes solution," said founder Craig McLuckie Heptio , Based in Seattle. McLuckie, a former Google employee, was also one of the inventors of Kubernetes, which was launched on Google and the native Cloud Computing Foundation.

AWS had already offered a quasi-reference architecture for Kubernetes through a quick start for Red Hat OpenShift, but Heptio's version is less specific about how to configure Kubernetes groups, McLuckie said.

"Heptio was the first support with commercial support 'Kubernetes of first upstream supply that is destined to be light, open and friendly with projects that are based on Kubernetes," he said.
