The most trusted way to start, run, and scale Kubernetes
Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) is a fully managed Kubernetes service provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS). It allows users to easily run and scale Kubernetes clusters without the need to manage the underlying infrastructure. AWS EKS simplifies the process of deploying, managing, and scaling containerized applications using Kubernetes. It provides a reliable and scalable platform for running production workloads, allowing developers to focus on application development rather than infrastructure management.
Amazon EKS is a managed Kubernetes service to run Kubernetes in the AWS cloud and on-premises data centers. In the cloud, Amazon EKS automatically manages the availability and scalability of the Kubernetes control plane nodes responsible for scheduling containers, managing application availability, storing cluster data, and other key tasks. With Amazon EKS, you can take advantage of all the performance, scale, reliability, and availability of AWS infrastructure, as well as integrations with AWS networking and security services. On-premises, EKS provides a consistent, fully-supported Kubernetes solution with integrated tooling and simple deployment to AWS Outposts, virtual machines, or bare metal servers.
Techpartner’s EKS experts have deep knowledge of the subject matter and provide a custom-tailored solution for the customer. Our experts help create applications that automatically scale up and down and run in a highly available configuration across multiple Availability Zones (AZs) with out-of-the-box networking and security integrations.
The Techpartner team also helps the client to migrate from on-prem or monolithic setups to EKS containerized setup for high performance, high availability, scalable and a cost optimized solution.
Integration with AWS Services
EKS also integrates with other AWS services such as Elastic Load Balancing, VPC networking, and IAM, providing a secure and efficient environment for running containerized applications.
At Techpartner, we deploy EKS using IaC (Infrastructure as Code) using Terraform modules which supports scaling, encryption and standard installation process for each environment like development, staging, and production.
AWS EKS provides several add-ons that enhance the functionality and capabilities of your Kubernetes clusters. These add-ons are designed to simplify common tasks, improve observability, and enable seamless integration with other AWS services. Commonly used add-ons are Cluster Autoscaler, EBS CSI driver, AWS Load balancer controller etc.
AWS EKS provides flexible scaling options to meet the changing demands of your applications. Scaling in EKS can be done at both the cluster level and the application level using cluster autoscaling for worker nodes and horizontal pod autoscaling for application pods. It also allows Custom Metrics and External Autoscalers for scaling using Amazon CloudWatch, Prometheus, or other monitoring solutions to collect custom metrics and trigger scaling actions based on those metrics.
AWS EKS provides several security features to ensure the protection of your containerized applications and the underlying infrastructure. Some key security aspects of EKS include VPC Isolation, IAM Integration, Encryption at rest and in-transit, container image security, pod security policies, etc.
