In this post, we are going to guide you on how to run Ant Media Server on AWS EKS step by step.

1. After you are logged in to AWS, search the EKS keyword, find the Elastic Kubernetes Service, and click the Add Cluster > Create button.

11. Update your Kubernetes kubeconfig settings as below, then list your nodes with the kubectl get nodes command.

aws eks --region your_region update-kubeconfig --name clustername

12. Now, it’s time to deploy the Ant Media Server. Create the yaml files in order as follows.

First, you should organize your image field since you are going to change images. Here are the steps to organize your image field:

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ant-media/Scripts/master/kubernetes/ams-k8s-deployment.yaml 
kubectl create -f ams-k8s-deployment.yaml
kubectl create -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ant-media/Scripts/master/kubernetes/ams-k8s-hpa.yaml
kubectl create -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ant-media/Scripts/master/kubernetes/ams-k8s-rtmp.yaml 
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ant-media/Scripts/master/kubernetes/ams-k8s-ingress.yaml

Deploy the ingress.

Once the changes on the ams-k8s-ingress.yaml file are done, let’s create our ingress.

kubectl create -f ams-k8s-ingress.yaml

If everything works well, you will see the public IP address/domain name in the kubectl get ingress command’s output. After you make your DNS registration, you will be able to access over the domain you have determined.

Run kubectl get services command to get the RTMP address. You can send broadcasts over 1935 to the domain name that appears as EXTERNAL-IP.

When we check the AMS dashboard, we can see that 2 nodes have joined the cluster.
