Please note: this EKS and Karpenter workshop version is now deprecated since the launch of Karpenter v1beta, and has been updated to a new home on AWS Workshop Studio here: Karpenter: Amazon EKS Best Practice and Cloud Cost Optimization.

This workshop remains here for reference to those who have used this workshop before, or those who want to reference this workshop for running Karpenter on version v1alpha5.


In this workshop, you learned about how Karpenter applies a group-less scaling approach that simplifies scaling configuration to Kubernetes scaling. We’ve learned how Karpenter applies a Service first approach, by focusing on what are your application requirements and procuring capacity accordingly. We’ve learned how Karpenter helps us to apply best practices for flexible compute by diversifying EC2 instance types.

Let’s wrap up with a summary of what we have accomplished.
