The Amazon VPC Container Networking Interface (CNI) plugin version 1.1 is now available.

The Amazon VPC CNI plugin allows Kubernetes pods to receive native AWS VPC IP addresses, giving them network access and security controls. The CNI plugin is a core part of Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS) and as such, the EKS team will continue to develop the project in collaboration with our partners and customers.

Version 1.1 of the CNI plugin adds the ability for EKS pods to communicate outside of the VPC, adds a configurable address pool, ensures that CNI plugin daemons are scheduled on all nodes in a cluster, and adds elastic network interface (ENI) resource tagging.

To learn more, read our blog post or vist the Amazon VPC CNI GitHub repository.

Please visit the AWS region table to see all AWS regions where Amazon EKS is available.
