Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) now supports the Multus Container Networking Interface (CNI) plugin, enabling pods running in EKS clusters to attach multiple network interfaces in support of advanced networking configurations.

Multus is an open source CNI plugin for Kubernetes that enables attaching multiple network interfaces to pods. Multus acts as a meta plugin, invoking additional CNI plugins that can operate on multiple network interfaces attached to pods. Use cases that commonly require pods with multiple interfaces include running 5G and streaming networks on Kubernetes.

Amazon EKS provides a highly available managed Kubernetes service that is available in all global AWS regions, and supported in edge locations like AWS Local Zones and AWS Outposts. Using Multus with EKS enables advanced networking across these environments to run containerized network functions that deliver high quality content to end users.
