This lab facilitates learning by doing by utilizing Packer to create an ami-image file that is staged in Amazon aws. The Packer tool is used to run an Ansible role against the OS image to harden the image. The resulting ami-image would then be available to specify when creating or upgrading Kubernetes clusters using installers such as kops.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
