Today, we are excited to announce the general availability of Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) Connector. With EKS Connector, you can now extend the EKS console to view your Kubernetes clusters outside of AWS. You can use the EKS console to visualize Kubernetes clusters including your on-premises Kubernetes clusters, self-managed clusters running on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), and clusters from other cloud providers. Once connected, you can see all of your clusters’ statuses, configurations, and workloads in one place on the EKS console.

We also added support for connected cluster tagging and Kubernetes version display on the EKS console. Registering a cluster is now easier with fewer steps as we’ve automated the Service Linked Role creation. You can also use the Service Quotas console to request connecting more than 10 clusters per region at a time. To learn more about EKS Connector, visit the documentation.
