How Freddie Mac used Amazon EKS to modernize their platform and migrate applications

Introduction Freddie Mac has a mission to provide a stable US housing Market. Freddie Mac identified the need for faster application delivery, scalable performance, increased resiliency, and cost optimization of their existing application portfolio. To achieve their mission goals, Freddie Mac undertook a migration from on-premises Kubernetes to Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS). As […]

Deploying Karpenter Nodes with Multus on Amazon EKS

Container based Telco workloads use Multus CNI primarily for traffic or network segmentation. Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) supports Multus CNI enabling users to attach multiple network interfaces, apply advanced network configuration and segmentation to Kubernetes-based applications running on AWS. One of the many benefits of running applications on AWS is resource elasticity (scaling out and scaling […]

Ensuring fair bandwidth allocation for Amazon EKS Workloads

Independent Service Vendor (ISV) users often offer their end-user solutions hosted on a multi-tenant architecture to reduce cost and operational management. However, this approach can lead Kubernetes clusters to resource exhaustion or network starvation issues that impact neighboring workloads. By default, Kubernetes provides capabilities to enforce resource availability such as CPU and memory to prevent […]

Enhancing Kubernetes workload isolation and security using Kata Containers

Containers have become the dominant method for deploying and managing applications in recent years. Their widespread adoption is attributed to numerous advantages, such as isolation, efficient hardware use, scalability, and portability. In situations where resource isolation is critical for system security, many users are forced to rely on virtual machines (VMs) to mitigate the impact […]

Mobileye: Revolutionizing HD map creation for autonomous vehicles with Spark on Amazon EKS

Mobileye (Nasdaq: MBLY), a global leader in advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), is at the forefront of the autonomous driving revolution. Founded in 1999, they have pioneered groundbreaking technologies such as REM™ crowdsourced mapping, True-Redundancy™ sensing, and Responsibility-Sensitive Safety (RSS). These innovations are paving the way for a future filled with self-driving vehicles and advanced mobility […]

Disaster Recovery on AWS Outposts to AWS Local Zones with a GitOps approach for Amazon EKS

Users often need to host their Kubernetes workloads in specific locations, geographies, or on-premises to meet data locality or low-latency requirements. Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) has a broad range of deployments options from in the cloud to on-premises on customer-managed hardware with Amazon EKS Anywhere. To extend AWS infrastructure and APIs to users on-premises, […]

Streamline production grade clusters with Amazon AFT and Terraform EKS Blueprints

AWS users need to continuously enhance their infrastructure and security processes. This typically involves a two-phase approach: discovery and design, followed by implementation. In the discovery phase, an assessment of the current infrastructure is conducted, leading to the creation of architecture documents and patterns for the subsequent implementation phase. This process delves into Account Structure, […]

How Slack adopted Karpenter to increase Operational and Cost Efficiency

Bedrock – Slack’s internal Kubernetes platform Slack is the AI-powered platform for work that connects people, conversations, apps, and systems together in one place. Slack adopted Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon ) to build “Bedrock,” the codename for an internal compute orchestration platform that simplifies container deployment and management. Bedrock handles build, deploy, and runtime […]
