Weaveworks on AWS

Visit us at virtual AWS Re:invent (Dec 1-18)

Weaveworks is an EKS advanced partner that built eksctl, a CLI tool for cluster creation with a single command. Visit our booth and learn about our Weave Kubernetes Platform, a modular GitOps platform to enable deployment in a wide range of environments from cloud and on-prem data centers to edge based clusters. Book a meeting with our team at reInvent to discuss your EKS, EKS-D, Kubernetes and GitOps needs.

How we partner with AWS

As an AWS Advanced Technology Partner, we help organizations navigate the challenges of getting Kubernetes successfully running on AWS using the GitOps methodology. 

eksctl - Cluster Creation with a Single Command

Jointly developed by AWS and Weaveworks eksctl automates much of the experience of creating EKS clusters. eksctl is written in Go and makes use of AWS CloudFormation. With just one command create a cluster in minutes and manage it’s entire lifecycle with GitOps.  Read EKS user guide for a deep dive.

Weaveworks brings GitOps to EKS-D


Learn how WKP brings Day 2 Operations to Amazon EKS Distro - a new AWS-backed Kubernetes option for on-premise and multi-cloud. Read the launch blog post.

Weave Kubernetes Platform (WKP) brings GitOps to Amazon EKS Distro (EKS-D)  and provides support for installing, creating and managing EKS-D clusters on-premise. Like any distribution of Kubernetes, EKS-D requires configuration, upgrades as well as additional components and add-ons like logging, tracing and metrics. WKP solves these problems by adding GitOps to every layer of your Kubernetes environment for EKS-D or any other distribution both in the cloud and on-premise.  

We’ve put together a demo showing how to install Weave Kubernetes Platform, use GitOps to build a continuous deployment pipeline and promote deployments from a development cluster to production. This hybrid cloud scenario covers a development cluster based in the cloud on AWS EKS, together with a production deployment on-premise with EKS-D.

Customer Success Stories 

Weaveworks and AWS partnership brings advanced Kubernetes (EKS) to enterprises in the financial, technology and automotive industries. Our experienced customer reliability engineers have helped many organization to design, build and operate EKS in production using the GitOps methodology.


“We turned to Weaveworks because of their extensive EKS and Kubernetes experience, including their close partnership with AWS. With Weaveworks’ proven track record of running Kubernetes in production, we wanted to bring new thinking into our organization to accelerate our learnings,” Nicola Le Poidevin, Head of Technology Wealth Management Digital

FIDEKS - GitOps driven “Augmented K8S Platform for Enterprise”

With more than 8.3 trillion dollars in assets under its administration and 3.3 trillion in total discretionary assets, Fidelity Investments is one of the world’s largest asset managers. The firm offers a wide range of investment products and investment services that span retail, workplace, institutional and intermediary markets. They teamed up with AWS and Weaveworks to implement secure and compliant Kubernetes platforms.

The challenge is not in the technology itself, or the tools... The challenge is mainly building the structure inside the teams. We’re building many centers of excellences across all of our business units and all of our teams. To build a structure across 10,000 developers plus is a major challenge.

Automating Kubernetes with Amazon EKS and GitOps

GitOps lets teams continuously deploy new versions to hundreds of EKS environments simultaneously. With a clear deployment pipeline any failures are instrumented and changes can be reverted immediately.

Product Demo: Weave Kubernetes Platform

GitOps is both the underlying architecture and developer experience of Weave Kubernetes Platform (WKP) simplifying the configuration and management of Kubernetes platforms across your organization. Benefit from repeatable, flexible Kubernetes operations across a wide range of environments from cloud and on-prem data centers to edge based clusters.


Why GitOps on AWS?

Intro to GitOps

Learn the 4 principles of GitOps for creating an enhanced developer experience which increases productivity. A live demo will show how to boost stability and reliability in Kubernetes environments, integrating security right from the start.

High Availability and Disaster Recovery

Learn how to leverage Weave Kubernetes Platform and GitOps to create disaster recovery plans and highly available clusters with minimal effort on EKS. A live demo will show how to build for reproducibility, security and scale from the start as well as create GitOps driven cluster and lifecycle management.

Managing governance, risk and compliance

Learn how GitOps workflows can provide a separation of concerns between development and deployment, automate transparency and auditability and reduce risk through rollback and logging.

High performing team operations

Learn how GitOps can help teams release updates and feature more rapidly without knowing internals of EKS and operators can reduce overhead for lifecycle management of workloads and clusters.

Accelerate your journey to Amazon EKS with GitOps

Weaveworks EKS + GitOps QuickStart is a comprehensive package to design, build, and operate EKS in production using the GitOps methodology.
