Announcing Windows support for containerd runtime on EKS starting with Kubernetes 1.21

Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service now supports the containerd container runtime on Windows worker nodes. Containerd is a lightweight container runtime that manages the complete container lifecycle on its host system, from container image transfer to execution, as well as storage and network attachment. Customers with Windows workloads can now get similar performance, security, and stability benefits from containerd that are available to customers running Linux-based worker nodes.
