By GIXnews

Today, Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced the public preview of Bottlerocket, a new open source Linux-based Operating System (OS) that is purpose-built to run containers. Bottlerocket comes with a single-step update mechanism and includes only the essential software to run containers. These properties enable customers to use container orchestrators to manage OS updates with minimal disruptions, enabling better uptime for containerized applications and lower operational cost. Currently, Bottlerocket is supported for use with Amazon EKS. Amazon ECS will also be supported soon.
