Kubernetes is an open-source container orchestration platform that supports automated deployments and scaling for containerized workloads and services. Kubernetes uses a combination of Pod, Deployment, Service, and Replication objects to create a suitable runtime environment for containerized applications.
The Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS) is a managed Kubernetes service offered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) that automatically updates, patches, and heals the control plane with minimal interruption of traffic to end user applications and tightly integrates with other AWS services.
This white paper gives an overview of EKS, its architecture, and a technical example of setting up an EKS cluster environment.
