"It's the best option for medium or large enterprises."
"I like the scalability they're currently providing. Integration was very easy. It was a good experience."
"Initial setup is straightforward. It only takes 15 minutes to deploy."
"The product helps us to configure the new environment."
"The most valuable feature is the computing speed."
"It's a faster solution to adopt on native applications."
"The stability is excellent."
"I like its auto-scale feature very much."
"The most valuable aspects of Linode are the virtual server and the clean server. I install what I need on it."
"Generally speaking, I have not found any faults using Linode. For what we wanted, they provided a complete solution."
"The solution integrates easily."
"Linode has many other cloud servers across the globe."
"The fact that you can get a person on the phone has just been fantastic."
"Amazon EKS is predominately public. However, the government has started to have a lot of interest in Kubernetes and is receiving more education on Kubernetes and Amazon EKS. If we can have the security of Amazon EKS align with the security that is set out by the government it would be much better."
"I'd like to see the solution add a service catalog."
"There is room for improvement in stability. I faced some problems with the App."
"The tool's setup is complex."
"The solution could be improved by adding monitoring, filtering, and logging capabilities to its current CloudWatch features."
"The solution should include a popup for clusters so that all relevant information is visible at the bottom of a page."
"The connectivity could be better."
"They should enhance the Jira integration."
"Our primary concern is always the latency."
"There is no notification from the company regarding upgrades."
"When it comes to marketing and exposure, Linode needs improvement because I just randomly found them by looking for Linux solutions."
"I've had some difficulties with some of their IP addresses being banned by certain mail servers."
"The network between different servers isn't very good. I have to install additional solutions to link the servers with each other."
Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) is a fully managed Kubernetes service. Customers such as Intel, Snap, Intuit, GoDaddy, and Autodesk trust EKS to run their most sensitive and mission critical applications because of its security, reliability, and scalability.
EKS is the best place to run Kubernetes for several reasons. First, you can choose to run your EKS clusters using AWS Fargate, which is serverless compute for containers. Fargate removes the need to provision and manage servers, lets you specify and pay for resources per application, and improves security through application isolation by design. Second, EKS is deeply integrated with services such as Amazon CloudWatch, Auto Scaling Groups, AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM), and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), providing you a seamless experience to monitor, scale, and load-balance your applications. Third, EKS integrates with AWS App Mesh and provides a Kubernetes native experience to consume service mesh features and bring rich observability, traffic controls and security features to applications. Additionally, EKS provides a scalable and highly-available control plane that runs across multiple availability zones to eliminate a single point of failure.
EKS runs upstream Kubernetes and is certified Kubernetes conformant so you can leverage all benefits of open source tooling from the community. You can also easily migrate any standard Kubernetes application to EKS without needing to refactor your code.
