Amazon EMR on EKS simplifies big data application development with custom image support

Amazon EMR on Amazon EKS announced support for Custom Images, a new capability that enables customers to customize the Docker container images used for running Apache Spark applications on Amazon EMR on EKS. Custom images enables you to install and configure packages specific to your workload that are not available in the public distribution of EMR’s Spark runtime into a single immutable container. An immutable container promotes portability and simplifies dependency management for each workload and enables you to integrate developing applications for EMR on EKS with your own continuous integration (CI) pipeline.
