Amazon EKS optimized Amazon Linux AMI versions

This topic lists versions of the Amazon EKS optimized Amazon Linux AMIs and their corresponding versions of kubelet, Docker, the Linux kernel, and the Packer build script configuration.

The Amazon EKS optimized AMI metadata, including the AMI ID, for each variant can be retrieved programmatically. For more information, see Retrieving Amazon EKS optimized Amazon Linux AMI IDs.

AMIs are versioned by Kubernetes version and the release date of the AMI in the following format:

<k8s_major_version>.<k8s_minor_version>.<k8s_patch_version>-<release_date>

For a list of notable changes in each version, see Changelog on GitHub.
