Today, we are excited to announce the general availability of Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) Anywhere on Snow, a new deployment option that helps customers create and operate Kubernetes clusters on AWS Snow Family devices. EKS Anywhere on Snow is designed to provide Kubernetes cluster provisioning and familiar operational visibility tooling for customers to manage container applications lifecycle running on Snow devices deployed at the edge. 

Customers are building modern, infrastructure-agnostic applications using Kubernetes running on single or multiple devices. EKS Anywhere on Snow is ideal for customers who run their operations using secure and durable AWS Snow Family devices in unconditioned or mobile environments such as construction sites, ships, and rapidly deployed military forces. Customers use AWS Snow Family devices to run compute intensive telecom workloads and other applications in edge locations with denied, disrupted, intermittent, or limited (DDIL) network connectivity. Customers use AWS OpsHub for Snow Family to manage the Snow devices operating at the edge locally or remotely from a central location. 

To get started with EKS Anywhere on Snow, log in to the AWS Snow Family console and select ‘EKS Anywhere on Snow’ at the time of ordering your AWS Snow Family device. Amazon EKS Anywhere Enterprise Subscription is a pre-requisite for enabling EKS Anywhere on Snow. To learn more about EKS Anywhere Enterprise Subscription, click here.
