Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS) runs the Kubernetes management infrastructure for you across multiple AWS availability zones to eliminate a single point of failure. Amazon EKS is certified Kubernetes conformant so you can use existing tooling and plugins from partners and the Kubernetes community. Applications running on any standard Kubernetes environment are fully compatible and can be easily migrated to Amazon EKS.
A-Heads specialises in traditional DevOps practice and Cloud-based installations as well as migrating customers to Kubernetes and Cloud-Native system architectures.
Managed Kubernetes Platforms
We are familiar with and can help setting up Kubernetes on a variety of public and on-premise platforms. It is important to know how Kubernetes works on different platforms in order to produce an architecture, which could be migrated for cost-performance when needed.
Google Kubenetes Engine is a leading Kubernetes implementation from technology original authors. It is a first production-ready managed solution on the market. Kubernetes Engine is a managed, production-ready environment for deploying containerized applications. It brings our latest innovations in developer productivity, resource efficiency, automated operations, and open source flexibility to accelerate your time to market.
Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) is a fully managed container orchestration service. AKS provides an end-to-end solution for deployments of Kubernetes solutions. AKS is being developed very fas right now in order to keep up with its competition. It is already in production status by end of 2018.

One of the main benefits migrating to Kubernetes is having a portable architecture concept, where your system can be migrated between Kubernetes providers within reasonable timeframe and without major architectural changes. This gives possibility of major cost savings by selecting the most appropriate provider and also potential of architecting hybrid, cross-cloud solutions.
When building Kubernetes cluster we try to stick with the most popular open source tools. Some of the core tools are the following:
