Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) is a managed Kubernetes service on AWS that makes it easy to run Kubernetes without needing to install, operate, and maintain your own Kubernetes control plane or worker nodes.
Here are four benefits of using Amazon EKS
EKS automatically applies the latest security patches to your cluster control plane.
Multiple Availability Zones
EKS auto-detects and replaces unhealthy control plane nodes and provides on-demand, zero downtime upgrades and patching.
EKS supports AWS Fargate to remove the need to provision and manage servers, improving security through application isolation by design.
Built with the Community
AWS actively works with the Kubernetes community, including making contributions to the Kubernetes code base helping you take advantage of AWS services.
Amazon EKS also supports adding Windows nodes as worker nodes and scheduling Windows containers. EKS supports running Windows worker nodes alongside Linux worker nodes. Allowing you to use the same cluster for managing applications on either operating system.
In terms of pricing, Amazon says you pay $0.10/hour for each Amazon EKS cluster you create. The service is also available in all AWS regions.
