Introducing bare metal deployments for Amazon EKS Anywhere

Introducing bare metal deployments for Amazon EKS Anywhere

Introduction At one time, all servers were bare metal servers. We have come a long way with virtualization, cloud computing, and more recently with containers and serverless technologies. Despite these innovations, bare metal servers remain popular on premises. Customers run applications on bare metal infrastructure for performance benefits, to gain direct access to underlying hardware […]

Leverage AWS secrets stores from EKS Fargate with External Secrets Operator

Secrets management is a challenging but critical aspect of running secure and dynamic containerized applications at scale. To support this need to securely distribute secrets to running applications, Kubernetes provides native functionality to manage secrets in the form of Kubernetes Secrets. However, many customers choose to centralize the management of secrets outside of their Kubernetes […]

Amazon EKS improves control plane scaling and update speed by up to 4x

Amazon EKS improves control plane scaling and update speed by up to 4x

Years before Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) was released, our customers told us they wanted a service that would simplify Kubernetes management. Many of them were running self-managed clusters on Amazon Elastic Computer Cloud (EC2) and were having challenges upgrading, scaling, and maintaining the Kubernetes control plane. When EKS launched in 2018, it aimed to […]

Fine-grained IAM roles for Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS (ROSA) workloads with STS

Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS (ROSA) is a fully managed OpenShift service, jointly supported by both Red Hat and Amazon Web Services (AWS) and managed by the Red Hat SRE team. This relieves customers of cluster lifecycle management, allowing them to focus on building applications rather than maintaining the OpenShift clusters. ROSA has recently […]

Self-service AWS native service adoption in OpenShift using ACK

AWS Controllers for Kubernetes (ACK) is an open-source project that allows you to define and create AWS resources directly from within OpenShift. Using ACK, you can take advantage of AWS-managed services to complement the application workloads running in OpenShift without needing to define resources outside of the cluster or run services that provide supporting capabilities like […]
