Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) now supports the Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) CSI driver.  

The EBS CSI driver is available to install in EKS 1.14 clusters. The existing in-tree EBS plugin is still supported, but by using a CSI driver, you benefit from the decoupling between the Kubernetes upstream release cycle and the CSI driver release cycle. In a future release, the in-tree EBS plugin will be deprecated in favor of the CSI driver.
