We take care of the underlying infrastructure required to manage Kubernetes services both in the cloud and on-premises
Containerisation is becoming the ‘de facto’ solution thanks to its scalability, agility, portability and rapid time to market, and is the cornerstone for cloud-native applications. Container orchestration adds additional management and deployment automation, reaping the true benefits of scale to optimise costs across the enterprise. With managed orchestration platforms like Amazon EKS the underlying infrastructure is taken care of by AWS so that your effort is spent where it matters the most – at delivering business value.
Our GFT DevOps experts will help you reduce application deployment time with mature CI/CD pipelines to ensure you quickly experience the benefits of cloud-native applications.
What you should know
Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) is a managed service that you can use to run Kubernetes on AWS without needing to install, operate, and maintain your own Kubernetes control plane or nodes in on-premises data centres.
Cost reduction with efficient compute resource provisioning and automatic Kubernetes application scaling. Fully compatible with Kubernetes to leverage the orchestration platform’s ecosystem. Amazon EKS runs and automatically scales control plane instances based on load, detects and replaces unhealthy control plane instances, and provides automated version updates and patching for them.
Integration with AWS services
Elastic Kubernetes Service is integrated with many AWS services to provide scalability and security for your applications, including Amazon Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) for load distribution, Amazon Identity and Access Management (IAM) for authentication, Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) for workload isolation and Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR) for container images hosting.
With EKS businesses can build web applications that automatically scale up and down, and run in a highly available configuration across multiple Availability Zones. They can also manage Kubernetes clusters and applications in hybrid environments, as well as running Kubernetes in their own data centres.
