Deploying Antrea on Amazon EKS

 

Antrea is a Kubernetes-native project that implements the Container Network Interface (CNI) and Kubernetes Network Policy to provide network connectivity and security for application workloads.

 

Antrea extends the benefit of programmable networks from Open vSwitch (OVS) to Kubernetes.

 

Antrea CNI should be used in conjunction with the Amazon VPC CNI plugin to enable Network Policy enforcement and Policy Tiering on Amazon EKS and  Kubernetes clusters on AWS. Easily enable Antrea as a secondary CNI for your EKS clusters by following the steps in the Antrea documentation.

 

Project Antrea is maintained by engineers from VMware, Nvidia, Intel and others.

 

VMware provides several commercial support options for the project.
