Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (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. Kubernetes clusters require a Container Network Interface (CNI) that is responsible for cluster networking. One of the options available with EKS is the Amazon VPC CNI, which allows your Kubernetes Pods to utilize IP Addresses defined within your VPCs Subnets. While this provides more control and flexibility to businesses, it also comes with its own set of challenges.
While the benefits of managing and customizing the Amazon VPC CNI on EKS are significant, it’s important to note that the process can be challenging and time consuming, particularly if you lack experience with kubernetes or Amazon's VPC and its resources.
This is where Rafay’s EKS integration can come in handy. In this blog, we'll explore how Rafay’s Platform can address pain points and simplify the management process.
