"The feature that I have found most valuable is that it is very user-friendly."
"Break down your application into small modules to improve resiliency"
"We do not have to do a lot of administration, such as create virtual machines, or worry about our controllers or nodes going down because the solution is fully managed by Amazon."
"Provides high performance and easy manageability."
"I like the scalability they're currently providing. Integration was very easy. It was a good experience."
"Overall Amazon EKS is a good solution in the industry. The solution can support multi tendencies, and network isolations are the key factors."
"AWS cloud services are flexible and have thorough documentation. AWS also has data centers all over the world."
"The solution has very good basic features."
"I very much like the support that you get, and I think that it's excellent."
"The ability to fire up a virtual machine, use it, and then kill it, is quite a valuable feature for me."
"The most valuable feature is the domain settings page."
"The virtual machine configuration tool is very helpful for setting up a new server or for modifying an existing server."
"The most valuable features are the simple scalability and ease of starting a new virtual machine."
"The fact that you can get a person on the phone has just been fantastic."
"The most valuable feature is the static IP address, which has been very helpful for being able to log into the same address over the course of more than a decade."
"For small businesses and people who have some technical skills and are good with Linux command line, this solution is great. I love Linode because it is very fast. Whereas, the same configuration on Azure and AWS will be so slow. The best thing is that their pricing and speed are great."
"They need to work on the Amazon plugins on the Kubernetes cluster."
"The dashboard needs to be more user-friendly."
"The connectivity could be better."
"I would like to see it a little more stable, more operational, and more convenient to develop."
"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 would like Amazon EKS to be easier to configure on various environments like Windows or Linux installations"
"I'd like to see the solution add a service catalog."
"I've had some difficulties with some of their IP addresses being banned by certain mail servers."
"The only improvement in this aspect of the service which I can think of is perhaps a pool of developers who could be hired for those cases where the need goes beyond the support offered."
"Everything is up-to-date for a small business. But for big business, they need to improve certain things. For example, there should be better security."
"Because they are a smaller company, they do not have, for example, all of the ways for authentication that Amazon or Azure has."
"They could have more international servers. There are certain places throughout Europe and Eastern Europe which are very open to doing a lot of technology business, such as Romania. Romania is very open to technology. At other service providers, I have stuff in Romania. I think there are some Eastern European locations that would be more open to it. So, if they could have more European points of presence, that would be more helpful."
"Before they changed the dashboard, I found some of the more granular options easier to find."
"It's not really an issue with Linode itself but upgrading Linux major versions can be challenging. It would be be fantastic if Linode developed a way to ease transitioning to a major new Linux upgrade."
"It would be helpful if they offered a service where they handle the Linux security."
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.
