Storage - Amazon EKS


This chapter covers storage options for Amazon EKS clusters.

The Storage classes topic uses the in-tree Amazon EBS storage provisioner.


The existing in-tree Amazon EBS plugin is still supported, but by using a CSI driver, you benefit from the decoupling of Kubernetes upstream release cycle and CSI driver release cycle. Eventually, the in-tree plugin will be discontinued in favor of the CSI driver. However, the CSI driver isn't supported on Fargate.
