Amazon EKS Announces a 50% Price Reduction
Today, we’re reducing the price for Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) by 50% to $0.10 per hour for each Kubernetes cluster that you run. Amazon EKS is a managed [Kubernetes](/kubernetes/) service that makes it easy for you to run Kubernetes on AWS without needing to install, operate, and maintain your own Kubernetes control plane or worker nodes. Amazon EKS is certified Kubernetes conformant, so existing applications running on upstream Kubernetes are compatible with Amazon EKS. You can also easily migrate any standard Kubernetes application to EKS without needing to refactor your code. With Amazon EKS, you can take advantage of all the performance, scale, reliability, and availability of the AWS platform, as well as integrations with AWS services for compute, serverless, networking, security, and storage. Amazon EKS customers automatically benefit from this new lower price, which is effective from January 21, 2020\. New pricing applies to all [AWS Regions](/about-aws/global-infrastructure/regional-product-services/) where Amazon EKS is available.
