Windows worker nodes are now fully supported by Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS). Previously, EKS supported running Windows nodes as part of a public preview.

Kubernetes version 1.14 includes production-level support for adding Windows nodes as worker nodes and scheduling Windows containers. Starting today, Amazon EKS officially supports Windows nodes for all clusters running Kubernetes version 1.14 and above.

EKS supports running Windows worker nodes alongside Linux worker nodes, allowing customers with workloads on either operating system to use the same cluster for managing their applications.
