AWSome Kubernetes Monitoring on EKS

We’re EKStatic that AWS announced that their managed Kubernetes (EKS) is available. It’s EKSactly what we’ve been waiting for - fast and simple Kubernetes on AWS. The fastest way to create an EKS cluster is a new tool we’ve created: eksctl (available for download on Github). After the cluster is running simply add Continuous Delivery and Prometheus monitoring with Weave Cloud.
