Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) now allows you to create and manage EKS add-ons using AWS CloudFormation. EKS add-ons provide lifecycle management for Kubernetes operational software, making it easy to consistently start and update common and critical add-on software for your EKS clusters.
Now, you can create and manage EKS add-ons using AWS CloudFormation. This means that you can define an EKS cluster and add-ons in a single CloudFormation template. Today, EKS supports managing the installation and version of the Amazon VPC CNI networking plugin on clusters running Kubernetes version 1.18 and above, with support for more add-ons coming soon.
