    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.

    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.
