You can now use Amazon PrivateLink to privately access the Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) management APIs from your Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). PrivateLink provides private connectivity between VPCs, Amazon Web Services services, and your on-premises networks. You can now manage your Amazon EKS clusters in your VPC using PrivateLink to help meet your organization’s security and compliance requirements. To use PrivateLink, create an interface VPC endpoint for Amazon EKS in your VPC using the Amazon VPC console, SDK, or CLI. You can also access the VPC endpoint from on-premises environments or from other VPCs using Amazon Direct Connect, or VPC Peering. Creating VPC Endpoints incurs charges, see the Amazon PrivateLink pricing page for more information.

Amazon EKS is a fully managed Kubernetes service that makes it easier for you to run Kubernetes on Amazon Web Services Cloud without needing to install, operate, and maintain your own Kubernetes control plane or worker nodes. Amazon EKS is certified Kubernetes conformant, so you can migrate standard Kubernetes application to EKS without needing to refactor your code.

EKS support for PrivateLink is now available in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.
