Overview of Partners¶
A number of partners are providing install methods as well a integrations with EKS Distro.
Alcide provides centralized and unified security coverage across hybrid deployments that span across EKS, Outposts, and Amazon EKS Distro. Customers can use the same tools and best practices regardless of the deployment infrastructure. The Alcide platform addresses all Kubernetes security needs holistically, from design through deployment to production. The platform is designed from a DevOps perspective, while also ensuring robust and comprehensive Kubernetes security and compliance best practices.
Aqua Security provides KSPM (Kubernetes Security Posture Management) to improve visibility and remediate misconfigurations, as well as advanced, agentless K8s runtime protection. Customers can also leverage Kubernetes-native capabilities to attain policy-driven, full lifecycle protection and compliance for K8s applications.
Canonical allows you to take Amazon EKS Distro and combine it with the MicroK8s experience to get an opinionated, self-healing, highly available EKS-compatible Kubernetes for use anywhere you can get Ubuntu. Just snap install EKS and you are up and running.
Datadog provides visibility into the health of VMs, containers and serverless environments across on-premise, hybrid and cloud compute infrastructure.
Epsagon enables you to monitor Amazon EKS Distro workloads including control plane metrics. Customers can leverage Epsagon to instantly monitor, troubleshoot and trace issues in their EKS-D or EKS workloads seamlessly.
Instana works seamlessly on Kubernetes clusters using Amazon EKS Distro. With Instana customers can automatically monitor and visualize EKS-D and EKS workloads.
Amazon EKS Distro can be installed using KubeOne by Kubermatic. KubeOne is an infrastructure-agonistic and open source Kubernetes cluster lifecycle management tool that automates the deployment and Day 2 operations of single Kubernetes clusters. Thanks to KubeOne’s Terraform integration and ease of use, infrastructure responsibles can install EKS Distro on AWS and Amazon Linux 2 with minimal operational effort. For a detailed description of how to install KubeOne, please see the KubeOne documentation.
Set up EKS-D with KubeOne¶
First, create the
terraform.tfvars file to instruct Terraform to create
Amazon Linux 2 instances and to use the static workers instead of MachineDeployments.
Example terraform.tfvars file:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
Next, create the infrastructure using Terraform using
Now create the KubeOne Config manifest. Make sure to populate the
part with the real images. Here's an example:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27
To complete, run
kubeone apply -t ..
Kubestack is a Terraform framework that provides a GitOps workflow to manage EKS clusters and cluster services.
Simulate EKS clusters locally¶
Kubestack's auto-updating local development environment uses EKS-D to mirror
your EKS clusters on
