In a nutshell

  • Amazon EKS Anywhere is a deployment option for Amazon EKS that allows customers to create and operate Kubernetes clusters on customer-managed infrastructure, supported by AWS. Customers can run Amazon EKS Anywhere on their own on-premises infrastructure using VMs or bare metal deployments.
  • Amazon EKS Anywhere helps simplify the creation and operation of on-premises Kubernetes clusters with default component configurations while providing tools for automating cluster management.

Why we love it

  • The combination of Amazon’s battle-hardened Kubernetes experience with Equinix Metal’s bare metal server range provides a perfect combination of flexibility and control for your Kubernetes based applications
  • Use the EKS Kubernetes control plane you know and love across all your infrastructure. Extend your reach to the edge with Equinix Metal’s global Metro DC footprint.
  • Your EKS-A deployment will also benefit from using Equinix Fabric to make sure the traffic between your AWS and Equinix Metal resources is secure, low latency, low jitter, and price-predictable.
