Customizing Docker images for Amazon EMR on EKS

You can use customized Docker images with Amazon EMR on EKS. Customizing the Amazon EMR on EKS runtime image provides the following benefits:

  • Package application dependencies and runtime environment into a single immutable container that promotes portability and simplifies dependency management for each workload.

  • Install and configure packages that are optimized to your workloads. These packages may not be widely available in the public distribution of Amazon EMR runtimes.

  • Integrate Amazon EMR on EKS with current established build, test, and deployment processes within your organization, including local development and testing.

  • Apply established security processes, such as image scanning, that meet compliance and governance requirements within your organization.
