Today, AWS announces the general availability of the AWS Controllers for Kubernetes (ACK) for EventBridge and Pipes. This launch allows you to manage EventBridge resources, such as event buses, rules, and pipes, using the Kubernetes API and resource model (custom resource definitions).

Amazon EventBridge event buses and pipes are serverless event router and point-to-point integrations that enable you to create scalable event-driven applications by routing events between your own applications, third-party SaaS applications, and other AWS services. You can set up routing rules to determine where to send your events, allowing for application architectures to react to changes in your systems as they occur.

The EventBridge and Pipes ACK controllers join the 20+ generally available ACK controllers and enable you to create even complex event-driven architectures on Kubernetes by connecting resources from other available ACK controllers, such as S3, SQS, Lambda, and DynamoDB, with a consistent user experience. In the initial release, the two new EventBridge ACK controllers allow you to manage EventBridge event buses, rules, archives, global endpoints, and pipes as Kubernetes resources, with more resources planned in future releases.
