Set up your EKS Cluster

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.


Create the cluster

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.

Verify whether your cluster has a storage class

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.

Deploy Pixie

Once connected, follow the install steps to deploy Pixie.
