We are excited to announce the launch of the Amazon Elastic Kubernetes (EKS) Ready Specialization designed to highlight APN Partners who have demonstrated technical proficiency in providing solutions on running Kubernetes on Amazon Web Services (AWS), on-premises, and the edge with Amazon EKS and Amazon EKS-Anywhere (EKS-A). 

Container orchestration through Kubernetes allows customers to deploy and manage containerized applications rapidly, scale infinitely, and run application code, configuration, and dependencies as resource-isolated processes, resulting in improved portability of applications, and greater agility and operational resilience. With the security and convenience of EKS on AWS or EKS-A on-premises, customers can pick what fits best for their desired business case to run containerized applications including microservices, batch processing workers, and platforms as a service (PaaS), using the same tool-set on premises and in the cloud.

Amazon EKS Ready Partners are proud to provide software solutions that aid customers whether it’s on-premises or on AWS with complementary capabilities across containers security, networking, cost management, or automation. Amazon EKS Ready Partners have been technically vetted by AWS Partner Solution Architects and validated via Conformitron—an AWS framework to run conformance testing and quality assurance on different Amazon EKS deployment models—to ensure customers make informed decisions about solutions that have a consistent and high-quality experience with Amazon EKS or Amazon EKS-A.
