AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) (Jun 2018) is a managed Kubernetes solution for running containers available in AWS cloud platform since June 2018 [1]. EKS can be managed using Jenkins X software [2]. Other AWS services for running containers are ECS or Fargate.

By default EKS provides 3 master nodes and 3 etcd nodes, but are invisible to you and Amazon is responsible of Autoscaling them when needed.



EKS is not included in AWS Free Tier, usually running an EKS cluster is more expensive than ECS for small deployments. Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) offers free trial Kubernetes service. AWS charges $0.10 per hour for each EKS cluster (aprox $72 per month).
