Introducing Amazon EKS Distro – an open source Kubernetes distribution used by Amazon EKS.

Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) Distro is the same Kubernetes distribution used by Amazon EKS for customers who create Kubernetes clusters manually wherever their applications are deployed. Amazon EKS Distro provides builds and code of open source Kubernetes, etcd, CoreDNS, upstream CNI Core binaries, CSI Sidecar Containers, and the latest security patches. Amazon EKS Distro is available as an open source project from GitHub, and from AWS through Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR) for container images and Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) for builds.
