Amazon EKS vs kops: What are the differences?
Developers describe Amazon EKS as "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. On the other hand, kops is detailed as "Production Grade K8s Installation, Upgrades, and Management". It helps you create, destroy, upgrade and maintain production-grade, highly available, Kubernetes clusters from the command line. AWS (Amazon Web Services) is currently officially supported, with GCE in beta support , and VMware vSphere in alpha, and other platforms planned.
Amazon EKS belongs to "Containers as a Service" category of the tech stack, while kops can be primarily classified under "Cluster Management".
