Amazon EKS Partner AMIs

In addition to the official Amazon EKS-optimized, Canonical has partnered with Amazon EKS to create worker node AMIs that you can use in your clusters.

Canonical delivers a built-for-purpose Kubernetes Node OS image. This minimized Ubuntu image is optimized for Amazon EKS and includes the custom AWS kernel that is jointly developed with AWS. For more information, see Ubuntu and Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS) and Optimized Support for Amazon EKS on Ubuntu 18.04.
