Note: Skip this section if you already you have a target cluster set up.
If you don't have a cluster ready you can set one up based on the Getting Started with Amazon EKS guide.
~/.aws/credentialsor are stored as environment variables
aws sts get-caller-identity
Create a cluster with managed node-pools using eksctl:
eksctl create cluster
Update kubeconfig to point to the right cluster:
aws eks update-kubeconfig --name <cluster-name>
Verify that you are pointing to the right cluster
kubectl get svc
You can deploy clusters with alternate configurations or by using the AWS console. You can view our requirements to determine recommended node level compute requirements.
If you want to use the default settings for installing Pixie's Vizier module, you'll want to ensure that your EKS cluster has persistent volume and storage classes set up.
If your cluster does not have an accessible storage class type, you'll want to deploy with the etcd operator. Note that self-hosted Pixie Cloud requires persistent volumes.
Once connected, follow the install steps to deploy Pixie.
