Storage - Amazon EKS
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).


This chapter covers storage options for Amazon EKS clusters.

The Storage classes topic uses the in-tree Amazon EBS storage provisioner.


The existing in-tree Amazon EBS plugin is still supported, but by using a CSI driver, you benefit from the decoupling of Kubernetes upstream release cycle and CSI driver release cycle. Eventually, the in-tree plugin will be discontinued in favor of the CSI driver. However, the CSI driver isn't supported on Fargate.
