What is Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS)?

Amazon EKS has been used to both manage and scale clusters of infrastructure resources automatically on AWS with Kubernetes.

Amazon EKS is a certified, compatible solution, ensuring compatibility with existing Kubernetes applications. It simplifies container scheduling, availability monitoring, data storage, and other critical tasks that Amazon EKS handles automatically.

AWS handles cluster provisioning, upgrades, and patching. You can easily migrate your existing Kubernetes cluster to AWS without altering the codebase since EKS runs the upstream Kubernetes version. Additionally, EKS ensures high availability by distributing your infrastructure across multiple availability zones, eliminating a single point of failure.

Benefits of Amazon EKS

Amazon EKS is a fully managed service that allows you to leverage the benefits of Kubernetes without the need for in-house experts or infrastructure maintenance. With EKS, you can focus on managing your clusters and workloads, rather than designing highly usable and scalable controller nodes. The service takes care of maintaining your Kubernetes control plane, eliminating the need for installation and operation. You have the flexibility to manage applications within your cluster or utilize the Kubernetes control interface to organize individual resources.

EKS seamlessly integrates with AWS services by utilizing a VPC network. When defining your network, you can refer to ENI-type IP addresses, as EKS worker nodes define the maximum workload per node. Furthermore, applications running on Amazon EKS are compatible with those in existing Kubernetes environments, allowing you to transition to EKS without any code modifications.

EKS Runtime Monitoring

EKS Runtime Monitoring provides runtime threat detection coverage for Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) nodes and containers within your AWS environment. EKS Runtime Monitoring uses a GuardDuty security agent that adds runtime visibility into individual EKS workloads, for example, file access, process execution, and network connections. The GuardDuty security agent helps GuardDuty identify specific containers within your EKS clusters that are potentially compromised. It can also detect attempts to escalate privileges from an individual container to the underlying EC2 host, and the broader AWS environment.
