EasyStack Kubernetes Service (EKS) cloud container is a combination of Kubernetes and OpenStack. It integrates application and infrastructure resources from multiple management dimensions such as orchestration, scheduling, security, and operation and maintenance. It also finishes the final mile of the cloud center delivery, a new-generation application delivery, exploiting the efficiency advantage of 1+1>2.

EKS products are designed to be application-oriented. It comes with application managing services that facilitate central management and publications of containerized application on the platform.

Unified permissions

By using OpenStack Keystone components, EasyStack Kubernetes Service (EKS) provides unified user management services and opens up access control systems across both platforms.

Unified SDN network for VM and containers

Neutron components have help provided EKS and ECS platforms with a unified network service to enable all-in-one management of SDN network and to import advanced features of Neutron into container network, such as security groups, LBaaS, etc.

User isolation

EasyStack Kubernetes Service (EKS) supports each user to create and manage Kubernetes cluster independently, and the feature of multi-user isolation enhances the containers’ security.

Unified SDN storage for VM and containers

EasyStack Kubernetes Service (EKS) is able to use the OpenStack Cinder component as a persistent storage driver for Kubernetes. Meanwhile, the backend is able to interface with open source storage platforms or mainstream commercial storage devices that are widely supported in OpenStack, fully supporting stateful container services.

Layer 2 network performance improvement

EasyStack Kubernetes Service (EKS) straightly uses Neutron Layer 2 network as a network driver, avoiding the performance loss brought by nested Overlay networks and enabling direct Layer 2 connections between containers and virtual machines.
