Amazon EKS Anywhere Documentation

Amazon EKS Anywhere is container management software built by AWS that makes it easier to run and manage Kubernetes on-premises and at the edge. Amazon EKS Anywhere is built on Amazon EKS Distro, which is the same reliable and secure Kubernetes distribution used by Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) in AWS Cloud.

Amazon EKS Anywhere simplifies Kubernetes cluster management through the automation of undifferentiated heavy lifting such as infrastructure setup and Kubernetes cluster lifecycle operations. EKS Anywhere supports many different types of infrastructure including VMWare vSphere, Bare Metal, Nutanix, Apache CloudStack, and AWS Snow.

Simplify Kubernetes Management

Amazon EKS Anywhere simplifies the creation and operation of on-premises Kubernetes clusters with default component configurations and cluster lifecycle automation based on open source standards.

Streamline Support

AWS supports all Amazon EKS Anywhere components including the integrated third-party software, enabling customers to reduce support costs and avoid maintenance of redundant open source and third-party tools.

Consistent and Reliable

Amazon EKS Anywhere builds on the strengths of Amazon EKS Distro and provides open source software that’s up-to-date and patched with optional integrations with other AWS services for capabilities such as authentication, observability, and key encryption.
