Pro: Protection by Default

Spinnaker got a little hungry

You gotta protect those master nodes


Con: Low Customisation

EKS is something of a locked box in this respect

But they’re working on it!


Pro: IAM Integration


Con (Maybe a Pro?): Behind the latest versions

A real-life image of AWS trying to keep up with K8s releases.

But it’s not all grey…


Pro: AWS Patches Quick


Pro (But for us, was a Con): The AWS CNI Implementation

Limited IP environments


Con: It’s Behind Other Cloud Providers


So would I go EKS again?
