Pulumi Amazon Web Services (AWS) EKS Components

The Pulumi EKS library provides a Pulumi component that creates and manages the resources necessary to run an EKS Kubernetes cluster in AWS. This component exposes the Crosswalk for AWS functionality documented in the Pulumi Elastic Kubernetes Service guide as a package available in all Pulumi languages.

This includes:

  • The EKS cluster control plane.
  • The cluster's worker nodes configured as node groups, which are managed by an auto scaling group.
  • The AWS CNI Plugin aws-k8s-cni to manage pod networking in Kubernetes.


This package is available in many languages in the standard packaging formats.
