Amazon EKS vs Tectonic: What are the differences?
What is Amazon EKS? Highly available and scalable Kubernetes service. Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS) is a managed service that makes it easy for you to run Kubernetes on AWS without needing to install and operate your own Kubernetes clusters.
What is Tectonic? The smartest way to run your container infrastructure. A CoreOS + Kubernetes platform to run Linux containers.
Amazon EKS and Tectonic belong to "Containers as a Service" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by Amazon EKS are:
- Managed Kubernetes Control Plane - Amazon EKS provides a scalable and highly-available control plane that runs across multiple AWS availability zones.
- Security and Networking - Amazon EKS makes it easy to provide security for your Kubernetes clusters, with advanced features and integrations to AWS services and technology partner solutions.
- Logging - Amazon EKS is integrated with Amazon CloudWatch Logs and AWS CloudTrail to provide visibility and audit history tracking of your cluster and user activity.
On the other hand, Tectonic provides the following key features:
- Deploy code on a container-native stack
- Flexible architectures for each app
- Automatic load balancing for services
