Amazon EKS Distro (EKS-D): The Kubernetes Distribution Used by Amazon EKS

In here, we learn the Kubernetes Distribution Used by Amazon EKS. With Amazon EKS-D, AWS has built an open source bridge to its managed Kubernetes platform and a medium to drive the adoption of its cloud platform.

Amazon at the re:Invent 2020 virtual event made strategic announcements related to container services, the announcement include EKS-A (EKS Anywhere), EKS-C (EKS Console), ECS-A (ECS Anywhere) and EKS-D (EKS Distro). While EKS-A, EKS-C, ECS-A are expected to be available in 2021, AWS open sourced EKS-D — Kubernetes distribution that powers its Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS).

A Kubernetes distribution is Kubernetes with a chosen configuration and a chosen set of addons. There are multiple Kubernetes distributions like Rancher Kubernetes, VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid, Charmed Kubernetes from Canonical, Red Hat OpenShift etc. available upstream. Kubernetes is not secure by default, nor by itself, a security-focused Kubernetes distribution will configure Kubernetes with restrictive security policies which are mission critical for production environments.
