    Run Amazon EKS on your own infrastructure 🚀

    Not yet but it's a request we've heard from beta testers. Would love to hear what you need in a GitHub issue so we can prioritize additional providers.

  • eks-distro

    Amazon EKS Distro (EKS-D) is a Kubernetes distribution based on and used by Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) to create reliable and secure Kubernetes clusters.

    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.
