Welcome to this hands-on AWS lab! In this lab, we will deploy the Cluster Autoscaler to an Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (or EKS) cluster.

The Cluster Autoscaler is a default Kubernetes component that can scale either pods or nodes in a cluster. It automatically increases the size of an Auto Scaling group so that pods can continue to be placed successfully.

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.
