Amazon EKS Anywhere Bare Metal is a new deployment option for Amazon EKS. It enables customers to easily create and operate Kubernetes clusters on customer-managed infrastructure, supported by Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Many customers are looking to deploy and manage Kubernetes clusters with ease and scale. EKS Anywhere provides these capabilities, adding the option to deploy on bare metal servers, and therefore making full use of the available hardware.
With EKS Anywhere, PowerFlex customers benefit from a flexible deployment solution that scales as needed with the ability to separate compute and storage growth, in a unified fabric architecture.
PowerFlex is a fully integrated, preconfigured, and tested software-defined infrastructure system that is an ideal platform for Amazon EKS Anywhere. Amazon EKS Anywhere helps customers automate cluster management, reduce support costs, and eliminate the redundancy of using multiple open-source or third-party tools to manage Kubernetes clusters while driving operational simplicity through Kubernetes orchestration.
The PowerFlex family offers key value propositions for traditional and cloud-native workloads, deployment flexibility, linear scalability, predictable high performance, and enterprise-grade resilience. PowerFlex Container Storage Interface (CSI) driver enables customers to leverage PowerFlex storage APIs to automatically create and manage persistent volumes for their Kubernetes clusters.
The combination of EKS Anywhere and PowerFlex brings organizations to the next stop in their IT journey. The organizations can provide infrastructure as code and empower their DevOps teams to be the innovation engine for their organization.
