I wrote about our first impressions with EKS here https://sourcediving.com/elastic-kubernetes-service-536a9ffe9223 tldr; it’s really good and will save you a bunch of time setting up masters and etcd!!

Tried it last week. Main comments are:

  1. We need the Ireland region.
  2. It’s recommended to create a separate VPC. What are the downsides to using an existing VPC?
  3. It took me the better part of a day to follow the getting started guide. Azure and Google can start a cluster with one click. Any plans to make it a smoother experience.
