The company points out the deep integration of EKS with all other services and its scalability in its cloud platform.
The Amazon Web Service announcement of a container service based on Kubernetes in the AWS Re: Invent conference was not unexpected.
Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS) marks a milestone in the life of Kubernetes, the container orchestration software that emerged in Google and now lives as an open source project guided by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).
Introducing EKS in its opening speech, AWS CEO Andy Jassy acknowledged the deep integration of ECS with all the other AWS services and their scalability. But as Jassy always says, AWS listens to its customers, and customers sue Kubernetes.
“In the last 18-24 months, a lot of people have been interested in Kubernetes,” he said. “But there is work to be done [to do Kubernetes] … it’s just work. Our customers said there is something you could do to make it easier to operate. ”
One of the beneficiaries of the AWS news is Rancher, who creates a platform to implement and manage Kubernetes.
In the future, says Liang, the adoption of Kubernetes by AWS does not stifle Rancher, but instead focuses Rancher’s work on value-added tasks such as cluster and application management and less on launching and upgrading Kubernetes.
