Eksctl 0.1.7: share VPC with an existing kops cluster

In this week’s release of eksctl.io we have a couple of great new features that allow extra flexibility around VPC networking.

You can now co-locate an EKS cluster in the same VPC where your kops cluster resides. This would help those of you looking to try running workloads on EKS along the side with an existing kops cluster, and e.g. try to move some services over without having to make a big switch.

Additionally, this new release allows to set a custom VPC CIDR, which is helpful if you want to setup peering with another VPC.

Next week, we are hoping to introduce private node networking and support for multiple nodegroups.

Stay tuned, and go download latest binaries from eksctl.io! :smile:
