When you choose to use a public cloud-based Kubernetes service, such as Amazon EKS, Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), or Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), configuration and control plane management are automatically managed by the cloud provider. This includes ensuring high availability, security updates, and other essential operational tasks related to the functioning of Kubernetes. In this guide, we will cover all the necessary steps, from creating the control plane to managing the worker nodes. However, if you are using a cloud-managed Kubernetes service, you can skip directly to cluster workes as the control plane is already configured and maintained by the cloud provider. This allows you to focus on configuring and managing specific components of your cluster, such as applications and services.
