Best Practices for Upgrading Amazon EKS Clusters
Updates to Amazon EKS deliver new features, support for the latest K8s patches, and security updates. So, it is always best practice to have a strategy to keep your EKS clusters updated once updates are available. But there are a number of important considerations and approaches to upgrading your clusters. For example, should you upgrade your clusters in-place or use a blue-green or canary strategy?
Attend June’s K8s Office Hours with Amazon to answer this question and more. Amazon’s Partner Solution Architect, Andrew Park & Rafay’s VP of Products & Solutions, Mohan Atreya will describe best practices for upgrading Amazon EKS clusters. Come with upgrade questions or anything K8s-related! By attending you will learn:
- Critical considerations prior to upgrading Amazon EKS cluster
- Pros and cons, as well as tips, for various Amazon EKS upgrade strategies
- How AWS and Rafay partner to streamline the upgrade process

Learn More about Rafay Kubernetes Management Cloud
Enterprise-Grade Kubernetes Management, Finally
A SaaS-first Kubernetes management solution with enterprise-class scalability, zero-trust security and interoperability for managing apps across public clouds, data centers, and edge.
Realize all the benefits of the cloud including instant scalability, automatic updates and the lowest TCO for Kubernetes management with Rafay’s SaaS-first Kubernetes Management Cloud (KMC). Companies requiring air-gapped deployments for compliance and regulatory reasons can deploy KMC on-premises.
Zero-Trust K8s Architecture
The Kubernetes Management Cloud does not require inbound access to your Kubernetes clusters. No need to poke holes in firewalls or set up SSH access or reverse-tunnels. Zero-Trust Kubectl Access governs Kubectl activity by end-users as well as CI/CD systems with role-based access control (RBAC) and auditing of all actions.
Scalability & Fleet Management
Why manage clusters one by one? It’s time-consuming and prone to errors that result in non-standard environments. With the KMC, you can manage your fleet collectively. Create, deploy, operate, monitor, upgrade and retire 1 or 1,000+ clusters just as easily across any number of multiple, heterogeneous regions, clouds and environments.
Deep Distro Interoperability
Don’t get locked into a single Kubernetes distro across clouds. Freely use GKE in GCP, AKS in Azure, and EKS in AWS. Avoid vendor lock-in and preserve your company’s ability to deploy, manage & move containerized workloads between cloud, data center, and the edge.
Your Kubernetes deployments can’t be considered enterprise-class without integrating them with the Kubernetes, security and governance systems enterprises use most. Rafay includes integrations with Okta, AzureAD, Jenkins, Hashicorp Terraform & Vault, Datadog and a number of others that are just a few clicks away.
World-class Services & Support
When blogs and community resources aren’t enough, partner with Rafay’s deep bench of certified Kubernetes experts to jump-start & customize your Kubernetes journey.
