AWS Region: US East (N. Virginia) us-east-1
It is a managed container service for running and scaling Kubernetes applications.
Amazon EKS i.e. Elastic Kubernetes Service can be used in three ways:
Deploy applications with Amazon EKS in the cloud: Using AWS Fargate or Amazon EC2
Deploy applications with Amazon EKS anywhere: For your on-premise infrastructure
Deploy applications with your own tools: Using Bare metal, virtual machines, and Amazon EC2 instances
Since EKS is a managed service, it allows you to run Kubernetes on AWS without having to install Kubernetes.
