Automate Istio-Enabled Amazon EKS Cluster Deployment with Tetrate’s EKS Blueprints Add-On

Istio and Envoy have become key technologies in the modern application stack, especially for enterprises adopting Zero Trust security standards for microservices applications. Using standardized tooling from AWS and Tetrate, it’s easier than ever to fully integrate Amazon EKS and Istio into modern, declarative IaC deployment processes. Learn how to use EKS Blueprints with Tetrate’s Istio add-on to stand up fully bootstrapped clusters.

Understand Your Amazon EKS Spend and Enable FinOps for Kubernetes with Anodot

As the adoption of Amazon EKS for running Kubernetes clusters grows, customers are seeking ways to better understand and control their costs. To address these customer needs and shed more light on EKS costs, AWS has collaborated with Anodot, an AWS Partner that uses machine learning to autonomously monitor and alert on costs in near real time, and provides recommendations to help customers quickly resolve cost anomalies.

Build Kubernetes Modernization on AWS with Amazon EKS Delivery Partners

We are pleased to announce the new Amazon EKS Delivery specialization to help customers find validated AWS Partners that can help them implement their workloads using Kubernetes on top of Amazon EKS. The Amazon EKS Delivery specialization recognizes AWS Partners who have demonstrated technical proficiency to architect, run, and operate containerized workloads on top of Amazon EKS, helping customers drive success in their container-based modernization efforts.

Enabling Tiering and Throttling in a Multi-Tenant Amazon EKS SaaS Solution Using Amazon API Gateway

Every SaaS architecture must introduce mechanisms and policies that prevent noisy neighbor conditions. Getting these policies right is essential to building a robust SaaS solution that delivers a consistent experience to customers. This post looks at the different strategies that can be used to introduce the throttles (transaction rate) and quotas (transaction volume) that manage each tenant’s activity, exploring the various AWS services that can be used to bring these concepts to life.

Self-Service Platform for Standardized Amazon EKS Deployments Across the Organization

AWS provides a secure, reliable, and scalable environment for customers to run their container workloads. Customers running containers on premises are looking to move to AWS to gain agility benefits and reduce technical debt of managing their own infrastructure. Learn how Tech Mahindra transitioned a customer from an on-premises self-managed Kubernetes environment to a managed Amazon EKS platform with centralized self-service deployment options using AWS Service Catalog.

Building Resilient and Reliable Systems on AWS with Gremlin’s Reliability Platform

Today, many organizations trust Amazon Web Services (AWS) to host their business’s applications and infrastructure. As they continue to innovate, their applications and environments become increasingly complex. This post explores how AWS customers can leverage Gremlin to improve the resiliency and reliability of their applications. Learn how to apply chaos engineering principles to your Amazon EKS environment to increase uptime, reduce incidents, and build more resilient applications, systems, and services.

Implementing Zero-Trust Workload Security on Amazon EKS with Calico

Amazon EKS and Calico Cloud’s combined solution provides proof of security compliance to meet organizational regulatory requirements, but building and running cloud-native applications in EKS requires communication with other AWS and external third-party services. Learn how you can apply zero-trust workload access controls along with microsegmentation for workloads on EKS, and explore what implementing zero-trust workload access controls and identity-aware microsegmentation means for you.

Deploy Accelerated ML Models to Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service Using OctoML CLI

Deploying machine learning (ML) models as a packaged container with hardware-optimized acceleration, without compromising accuracy and while being financially feasible, can be challenging. As machine learning models become the brains of modern applications, developers need a simpler way to deploy trained ML models to live endpoints for inference. This post explores how a ML engineer can take a trained model, optimize and containerize the model using OctoML CLI, and deploy it to Amazon EKS.

Adding F5 BIG-IP Virtual Edition Load Balancing for Container Network Functions in Amazon EKS

The F5 BIG-IP Virtual Edition (VE) load balancer deployment adds new Layer 4 application capabilities and added visibility to those applications inside an Amazon EKS cluster to ensure a successful deployment in a containerized environment. This post presents a step-by-step guide for using the F5 BIG-IP VE on AWS as a load balancer for EKS clusters by using additional components, including the F5 Container Ingress Service (CIS) and F5 IPAM Controller (FIC).
