Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS)

Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS)

Kubernetes (K8s) is designed as an open-source system engineered to automate deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. This system easily groups containers that make up an application into logical groups for simple management and discovery.

The Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS) is developed to support easy deployment, managing, and scaling of containerized applications using Kubernetes on Amazon Web Services.

Amazon EKS operates and controls the Kubernetes management infrastructure for you across several AWS availability zones to prevent and defeat the possibility of a single point failure. This Amazon service is an accredited Kubernetes conformant, allowing you to utilize existing tools and plug-ins from both partners and the Kubernetes community. Every application operating on any standard Kubernetes environment is completely compatible and can be migrated to Amazon EKS easily and conveniently.

Benefits of Amazon EKS:

  • Easy Management

Amazon EKS conveniently operates the Kubernetes management infrastructure across a variety of AWS availability zones. It automatically recognizes and replaces unhealthy and corrupt control plane nodes while providing on-demand upgrades and patching. Simply plan the worker nodes and integrate them to the provided Amazon EKS endpoint.

  • Configured Security

Secure and encrypted communication channels are automatically arranged and established between your worker nodes and the managed control plane. This makes your infrastructure running on Amazon EKS protected by default.

  • Established with Kubernetes Community

Amazon Web Services works vigorously with the Kubernetes community, including creating contributions to the Kubernetes code base responsible for aiding Amazon EKS users to take advantage of both services and features from Amazon Web Services (AWS).

  • Consistent and Compatible

The Amazon EKS operates upstream Kubernetes and is guaranteed Kubernetes conformant in accordance with a series of specifications. Through that, applications handled and supervised by Amazon EKS are completely compatible with applications controlled by any standard Kubernetes environment.

Use Cases

  • Microservices

Efficiently run microservices applications with profound integrations to AWS services, while getting access to the full string of Kubernetes functionality and modern open source tooling.

  • Hybrid Container Deployments

Manage and operate highly available and scalable Kubernetes clusters on AWS while supporting adequate compatibility with your Kubernetes deployments running anywhere else.

  • Batch Processing

The Kubernetes Jobs API enables you to run consecutive or parallel workloads at hand on your Amazon EKS bunch. These workloads at hand can be used on Amazon EC2 On-Demand, Reserved, or Spot Instances.

  • Application Migration

Easily load and migrate existing applications to Amazon EKS without the need of refactoring your code or changing your tooling.
