Amazon EKS Anywhere is a new deployment option for Amazon EKS that enables you to easily create and operate Kubernetes clusters on-premises with your own virtual machines. It brings a consistent AWS management experience to your data center, building on the strengths of Amazon EKS Distro, the same distribution of Kubernetes that powers EKS on AWS. Its goal is to include full lifecycle management of multiple Kubernetes clusters that are capable of operating completely independently of any AWS services.

Here are the steps for getting started with EKS Anywhere. Full documentation for releases can be found on


The EKS Anywhere is tested using Prow, the Kubernetes CI system. EKS operates an installation of Prow, which is visible at Please read our CONTRIBUTING guide before making a pull request. Refer to our end to end guide to run E2E tests locally.

The dependencies which make up EKS Anywhere are defined and built via the build-tooling repo. To update dependencies please review the Readme for the specific dependency before opening a PR.
