Armory is excited to share we are an Amazon EKS Anywhere launch partner. Amazon EKS Anywhere is a new deployment option for Amazon EKS that enables you to easily create and operate Kubernetes clusters on-premises, including on your virtual machines and bare metal servers. Armory enables enterprises to unlock innovation by reliably deploying software at scale. One way we do this is through Armory Enterprise, our enterprise-grade, multi-target progressive delivery platform built on Spinnaker, the world’s leading continuous delivery platform.
Armory Enterprise, through its Kubernetes Operator, enables easy installation in any Kubernetes cluster, including an EKS-A cluster. This is accomplished by:
customize) to install and manage Armory Enterprise – no need to learn a bespoke CLI tool. You can store Armory Enterprise secrets in Kubernetes secrets. And you can validate your Spinnaker configurations before applying them.
Many enterprises run applications on-premises to satisfy regulatory, latency, and data residency requirements, or simply to leverage existing infrastructure investments. In these cases, using cloud-based tools can be difficult and costly, if not impossible. Their teams have to install, operate, and manage separate container orchestration software and need to use disparate tooling across their AWS and on-premises environments. Our customers have asked us for a way to manage their on-premises Armory Enterprise installations without this added complexity and cost. This is now possible through EKS Anywhere.
EKS Anywhere and Armory Enterprise
EKS Anywhere brings a consistent AWS management experience to your data center, building on the strengths of Amazon EKS Distro (the same Kubernetes that powers EKS on AWS.) EKS Anywhere saves you the complexity of buying or building your own management tooling to create EKS Distro clusters, configure the operating environment, update software, and handle backup and recovery. EKS Anywhere enables you to automate cluster management, reduce support costs, and eliminate the redundant effort of using multiple open source or 3rd party tools for operating Kubernetes clusters. EKS Anywhere is fully supported by AWS. In addition, you can optionally leverage the EKS console to view all your Kubernetes clusters, running anywhere.
Armory Enterprise on EKS Anywhere provides many proprietary features, including:
With Armory’s integrations, you can automate your code from commit to production, where users can then monitor applications, scale up, scale down, roll back, or roll forward, and you can use Armory to view and automate all of these actions.
To try Armory Enterprise outside of EKS Anywhere, you can use the Armory AWS Quick Start.
Introducing Quick Spin One of the most common challenges that organizations face when implementing a continuous deployment strategy is the time and focus that it takes to set up the tools and processes. But a secure, flexible, resilient and scalable solution is available right now. Want to see if it’s the right tool for your […]
