Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) now supports running containers on AWS Fargate in ten additional AWS regions: US West (Northern California), Canada (Central), South America (São Paulo), Europe (London), Europe (Paris), Europe (Stockholm), Middle East (Bahrain), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), and Asia Pacific (Hong Kong) regions. 

Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) is a managed service that makes it easy for you to run Kubernetes on AWS. AWS Fargate provides on-demand, right-sized compute capacity for containers that run as Kubernetes pods as part of an Amazon EKS cluster. EKS and Fargate make it straightforward to run Kubernetes-based applications on AWS by removing the need to provision and manage infrastructure for containers. 

Now, you can use Fargate to run your Kubernetes containers managed by Amazon EKS in 18 global AWS regions. See the AWS Regional Services page for a list of services available by region. To learn more about using Amazon EKS with Fargate, see the Amazon EKS documentation.
