EKS Cluster resources strategy

0

Hi,

I have micro-service application deployed in AWS with auto-scaling and each service has a its own instance. I wanted to migrate EC2 Instances to EKS cluster to reduce the cost, better resource utilization and high scalability. I have few doubts for this setup wanted of posting it here in re:Post best recommendations.

  1. How good if I migrate it to EKS
  2. Shall I pick 1 instance for all micro-services. If i took 1 then if something went wrong machine crashes then all the services will go down.
  3. Shall go for setup self-managed Kubernates

Apart from EKS, you can consider ECS or App Runner, EKS is good for production ready use case with a lot of microservices/full control. If you have just a couple of them, you can save costs by using the below two:

  • How good if I migrate it to EKS
  • It depends on your scenario, what are you seeking for ? Like reducing cost and more flexibility? You can also optimized the pod density in a specific instance.
  • Shall I pick 1 instance for all micro-services. If i took 1 then if something went wrong machine crashes then all the services will go down.
  • You can check the EKS event to see what happened behind, was that due to lack of vcpu or any else?
  • Shall go for setup self-managed Kubernates
  • If you would like to have more control with container like customized AMI, it can also be considered. But normally AWS managed EKS will be a good choice.
