Mendix on Amazon EKS Reference Deployment
By 2025, over 95% of new digital workloads will be deployed on cloud-native platforms, according to Gartner, and Kubernetes is the most widely adopted and mature of the cloud native platforms. At the same time, Mendix’ cloud-native architecture combines the developer productivity of low-code with the flexibility, scalability, high availability, and cost-efficiency of Kubernetes.
The downside is that Kubernetes may be a significant investment in time and resources if organizations take the wrong approach, so in this post I’m going to show you an easy way to avoid that.
Amazon EKS brings together the best of Mendix with the best of Kubernetes
Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) is a fully managed Kubernetes service that makes it easy to deploy, scale, and manage cloud-native applications using Kubernetes. It provides a simple and efficient way to run and scale cloud-native applications on the AWS infrastructure. With Amazon EKS, organizations can take advantage of the scalability and flexibility of Kubernetes, without having to worry about the underlying infrastructure.
Amazon EKS coupled with Mendix is a powerful solution for organizations wanting to build and deploy applications quickly and easily. By using Amazon EKS to manage the infrastructure, and Mendix to build the applications, organizations can take advantage of the best of both worlds. In recognition of that, Mendix has gone above and beyond to ease its adoption with Mendix on Amazon EKS Reference Deployment.
