First lab is focused on deploying all prerequisites for AWS ECS Fargate lab for Operations Teams. For the purpose of this lab we will use following AWS services and software components:
First, we’ll use the AWS CDK to deploy some prerequisites. Our guiding principle is that we’ll use the CDK to deploy static infrastructure and prerequisites.
Pick an AWS region to work in, such as
us-west-2. We’ll refer to this as
REGION going forward.
Also note your AWS account number. You find this in the console or by running
aws sts get-caller-identity on the CLI. We’ll refer to this as
ACCOUNT going forward.
In the AWS console, go to the Cloud9 service and select
Create environment. Call your new IDE
FargateIDE and click
Next Step. On the next screen, change the instance type to
t2.micro and click
Next step again. On the final page, click
Create environment. Make sure that you leave the VPC settings at the default values.
Once the environment builds, you’ll automatically redirect to the IDE. Take a minute to explore the interface, and note that you can change the color scheme if you like (AWS Cloud9 menu -> Preferences -> Themes).
Next, let’s update the Cloud9 environment to let you run the labs from the environment.
Create a role for your Cloud9 environment by clicking on the following link
Confirm that AWS service and EC2 are selected, then click Next to view permissions.
Confirm that AdministratorAccess is checked, then click Next: Tags to assign tags.
Take the defaults, and click Next: Review to review.
Cloud9-fargate-role for the Name, and click Create role.
Once this new profile is created, go to EC2 and find the Cloud9 instance, and assign the instance profile to this instance.
Go to Cloud9 Preferences and under AWS Credentials disable
AWS managed temporary credentials.
In your Cloud 9 environment, install the CDK and update some dependencies:
npm install -g firstname.lastname@example.org
Next clone the Git repo:
git clone https://github.com/aws-samples/amazon-ecs-fargate-workshop-dev-ops-data.git fargate-workshop-ops cd fargate-workshop-ops
Next we need to create a Python virtual environment.
virtualenv .env source .env/bin/activate
Now we install some CDK modules.
pip install awscli pip install --upgrade aws-cdk.core pip install -r labs/requirements.txt
Create the file
~/.aws/config with these lines:
[default] region=REGION account=ACCOUNT
We’re now ready to deploy the prerequisites.
cd ~/environment/fargate-workshop/labs/fargate-ops-cdk touch ~/.aws/credentials
Verify that cdk version is at least 1.23.0
Proceed to initial deployment. Run the following, making sure to substitute the proper values for your
cdk bootstrap aws://ACCOUNT/REGION cdk synth cdk deploy FargateWorkshopOps-base cdk deploy FargateWorkshopOps-cluster
This is what we’ll have after the deployment is complete:
