Kubernetes Backing Services

Kubernetes Backing Services are foundational services that other services in the cluster depend on such as IAM, ingress, external dns, TLS certificates, etc.


This assumes you’ve followed the Helm server-side install guide which covers all the necessary steps to get started.

We provide a number of Terraform Modules to provision AWS resources needed by Kubernetes backing service like external-dns and chart-repo.

See our Terraform modules for Kubernetes (Kops) for modules specific to kops.
