We are excited to announce the general availability of Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) Anywhere on Apache CloudStack which expands the choice of infrastructure options for customers running Kubernetes on-premises. Apache CloudStack enhances the list of deployment options for Amazon EKS Anywhere customers, which already includes bare metal servers and VMware vSphere.

Apache CloudStack, a project of the Apache Software Foundation, is open source software designed to deploy and manage large networks of virtual machines. While developing this new feature, we collaborated with the Apache CloudStack community to build the Cluster API provider for Apache CloudStack (CAPC), which has now joined the Kubernetes SIG. Amazon EKS Anywhere leverages CAPC to provide customers declarative, Kubernetes-style APIs for cluster creation, configuration, and management.

There are no upfront commitments or fees to use Amazon EKS Anywhere. Customers can optionally purchase Amazon EKS Anywhere Enterprise Subscriptions to get access to Amazon EKS Anywhere Curated Packages as well as 24/7 support from AWS’ highly-trained subject matter experts for all bundled tooling.
