Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) vs. Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

Recommended Posts

Managed Kubernetes is experiencing massive growth in adoption. Organizations are moving their self-managed Kubernetes clusters to make way for more manageable business applications. Cloud vendors like Microsoft and Amazon have already been reporting double digits growth with Amazon Kubernetes Service (AKS) and Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS). These managed Kubernetes services have been steadily gaining ground at the expense of DIY and cloud-hosted Kubernetes. Yet Amazon EC2 and self-managed remain a preferred way to Kubernetes adoption although they are losing market share.Amazon’s AWS has a controlling stake in the managed Kubernetes market, controlling over 40% of the market according to Stackrox. Amazon seems to be converting many of its EC2 customers to Elastic Kubernetes Service. Microsoft, being a major enterprise player, is shifting a lot of its Azure Kubernetes deployments to Azure Kubernetes Services. As an operator of a legacy operating system, a move to Kubernetes is a great direction for its customers pursuing app modernization. Microsoft is a great beneficiary of this change in the status quo. However, its market share isn’t growing as fast as the competition. Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) is facing stiff competition from Google Kubernetes Engine for the second position.
