Today, we are excited to announce the general availability of the Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) Anywhere Curated Packages, which are software packages that extend the core functionalities of Kubernetes. You can now install the Harbor package as a local container registry, the Emissary-Ingress package as the ingress controller, and the MetalLB package as the service type load balancer.
While these software packages are open-source projects you can freely access, the EKS Anywhere Curated Packages are container images that Amazon builds from open-source source code and tests for compatibility at each new EKS Anywhere release. The images also undergo Amazon security scanning and are signed by Amazon. All Amazon-signed curated packages are supported by Amazon under the Amazon EKS Anywhere Enterprise Subscription. The EKS Anywhere Curated Packages are only available to customers with the Amazon EKS Anywhere Enterprise Subscription.
The list of curated packages starts with networking software and container registry, but based on customer demand, we may add more software in the future that allows customers to monitor the health of the EKS Anywhere clusters, manage certificates and secretes, and deploy stateful applications with CSI drivers. To learn more about the EKS Anywhere Curated Packages and what packages are available today, check out the user documentation.
