Today Amazon announced Amazon EKS Distro (EKS-D), a Kubernetes distribution based on and used by Amazon EKS. Amazon EKS Distro enables operators to create reliable and secure Kubernetes clusters using the same versions of Kubernetes and its dependencies deployed by Amazon EKS. As an AWS partner, we are proud that our open source cluster lifecycle management tool Kubermatic KubeOne is part of the first batch of distributions to offer out-of-the-box support for Amazon EKS Distro. Thanks to Kubermatic KubeOne’s Terraform integration and ease of use, users can install EKS Distro on AWS and Amazon Linux 2 with minimal operational effort.
