Amazon EKS Managed Node Groups adds native support for Bottlerocket

Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) now adds native support for Bottlerocket in EKS managed node groups in all commercial AWS regions. Most EKS customers today deploy their applications on worker nodes backed by operating systems that are designed for a variety of use cases. AWS launched Bottlerocket, a minimal, Linux-based open source operating system that is purpose built and optimized to run containers. When combined, EKS managed node groups and Bottlerocket give customers a simple way to provision and manage compute capacity using the latest best practices for running containers in production. Bottlerocket is now included as a built-in AMI choice for managed node groups, enabling customers to provision container optimized worker nodes with a single click.
