Overview of this book

Continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) has never been simple, but these days the landscape is more bewildering than ever; its terrain riddled with blind alleys and pitfalls that seem almost designed to trap the less-experienced developer. If you’re determined enough to keep your balance on the cutting edge, this book will help you navigate the landscape with ease. This book will guide you through the most modern ways of building CI/CD pipelines with AWS, taking you step-by-step from the basics right through to the most advanced topics in this domain. The book starts by covering the basics of CI/CD with AWS. Once you’re well-versed with tools such as AWS Codestar, Proton, CodeGuru, App Mesh, SecurityHub, and CloudFormation, you’ll focus on chaos engineering, the latest trend in testing the fault tolerance of your system. Next, you’ll explore the advanced concepts of AIOps and DevSecOps, two highly sought-after skill sets for securing and optimizing your CI/CD systems. All along, you’ll cover the full range of AWS CI/CD features, gaining real-world expertise. By the end of this AWS book, you’ll have the confidence you need to create resilient, secure, and performant CI/CD pipelines using the best techniques and technologies that AWS has to offer.

Implementing traffic management

In this section of the chapter, we will enable a mesh in the EKS cluster. After that, we will create an App Mesh component, virtual service, virtual node, virtual router, and virtual gateway. We will also create another version of a service and perform weight-based traffic routing.

Installing the App Mesh controller

The following diagram shows the traffic flow if we enable App Mesh and create all of its components:

Perform the following steps to create an App Mesh controller in an EKS cluster:

  1. We will install the App Mesh controller on the EKS cluster using the Helm CLI. So, we need to install the Helm binary:
    $ curl -sSL | bash
    $ helm version --short
  2. Once Helm is installed, add the EKS charts repository:
    $ helm repo add eks
  3. We will...
