Are you familiar with Bottlerocket, the open-source, Linux-based container OS? Explore its role in AWS containerization and learn how it fits alongside EKS.


AWS abstracts container orchestration so IT teams don't have to worry about managing master nodes and API versions -- but that doesn't solve everything. These deployments still need patching, security implementations and proper performance monitoring.

To address this, AWS built Bottlerocket, a Linux-based OS with the sole purpose of running containers in AWS, on bare metal or in virtualized environments. In this article, you will learn the pros and cons of Bottlerocket and see how to configure it for Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS).
