Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) is a managed container service designed to deploy and scale cloud-based or on-premises Kubernetes applications. To help automate Kubernetes deployments like EKS, organizations are increasingly turning to popular infrastructure-as-code (IaC) frameworks like HashiCorp Terraform and AWS Cloud Development Kit (AWS CDK). However, setting up an IaC-based infrastructure with EKS needs tools such as Datadog for observability and requires deep expertise in AWS and Kubernetes.
To make using EKS easier, Amazon introduced EKS Blueprints, a collection of IaC modules that will help you configure and deploy consistent, batteries-included EKS clusters across accounts and regions. In addition, Datadog now has an EKS add-on to simplify deploying Datadog in EKS Blueprints environments.
