    I work on EKS Anywhere and familiar with those options but my answer will be biased

    EKS Anywhere provides a CLI, packaged Cluster API, and other tools (CNI, GitOps) on top of raw Kubernetes. K8s, k3s, k0s are binaries you have to manage and are similar to EKS Distro [1] which we publish and build on top of.

    EKS Anywhere is designed to give you clusters you can manage long term using Cluster API and a full suite of tools for how we thing Kubernetes clusters should be run based on our experience running EKS. It is a closer comparison to Rancher's RKE or VMware Tanzu for provisioning clusters, but some features and implementation details are different.

    EKS Anywhere builds on the strengths of Amazon EKS Distro, the same open-source distribution of Kubernetes that is used by Amazon EKS on the cloud, thus fostering consistency and compatibility between clusters both on AWS as well as on-premises.

    yes im aware of bmctl. however you dont have control over the kubernetes distro that's running.

    is there anything similar to https://github.com/aws/eks-distro ?

    EKS-A focuses on cluster management for HA environments. By default we use 3 etcd nodes, 2 control plane nodes, and 3 worker nodes. It uses cilium as the default CNI and Cluster API controllers for continual cluster state management. It has some optional configuration for a flux controller and OIDC authentication but it doesn't add default services or workloads. EKS-A also uses EKS Distro which is the open source Kubernetes distribution we run in hosted EKS.

    EKS Anywhere is not released. It is “coming soon” and is based on EKS Distro. Distro is OSS. Anywhere will be supported at GA release.

  • Docker for Rancher?
    3 projects | /r/kubernetes | 16 Oct 2022
    I'd suggest move from rancher to EKS Anywhere and the respective Cluster API providers... Self-managed node pools on top of bottlerocket can be established using common terraform-aws-eks module, otherwise.
  • Is setting up a production k8s a one-man job?

    There are plenty of vendor specific bugs, like no EBS in [EKS Fargate](https://github.com/aws/containers-roadmap/issues/1113), and settling a Kubernetes cluster on top of Bottlerocket and [EKS Anywhere](https://github.com/aws/eks-anywhere), on your own is somewhat impossible.

    > It has no init system.

    Apologies that I can't link directly to the "--init" flag but docker actually does have an init, it's just (err, was?) compiled into the binary: https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/commandline/run/#op...

    My recollection is that it either adopted, or inspired, https://github.com/Yelp/dumb-init#readme which folks used to put into their Dockerfile as the init system back in the day

    Folks (ahem, I'm looking at you, eks-anywhere[0]) who bundle systemd into a docker container are gravely misguided, and the ones which do so for the ability to launch sshd alongside the actual container's main process are truly, truly lost
