Tigera Solutions for AWS
Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides a highly reliable, scalable, low-cost infrastructure platform in the cloud that powers hundreds of thousands of businesses in 190 countries around the world. Tigera is an Advanced Technology Partner and have partnered to enable scalable, secure application connectivity for Amazon’s Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS) and other cloud deployment scenarios.
Enabling Containers in AWS
If you’re looking to deploy containers in AWS, Tigera’s got you covered.
- If you’re deploying self-managed Kubernetes in EC2, Tigera Calico is integrated with all the popular installers including kops, and is the default networking plug-in for the Heptio Quick Start for AWS.
- Users of Windows containers on AWS can now get Tigera Calico support for Kubernetes network policy on that platform, via a subscription to Tigera Essentials.
- For users of Amazon’s Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS), Tigera Calico is integrated right out of the box, enabling the industry’s standard implementation of Kubernetes network policy.
- For either EKS or self-managed Kubernetes, Tigera Secure Cloud Edition, available on AWS Marketplace, is your “easy button” for security and compliance needs, including integration of network policy and security groups for cluster-to-VPC network security; enhanced flow logs, metrics and alerts in AWS CloudWatch; and always-on network encryption.
- Tigera Secure Enterprise Edition provides even greater capabilities for ensuring your container deployments are secure and compliant.
Securing Traditional and Modern Workloads in Cloud and On-Prem
Tigera addresses a range of security requirements in AWS, across VM and container workloads, and in pure-cloud as well as hybrid cloud + on-premise scenarios.
While designed for the highly dynamic era of container workloads, Tigera’s network policy agent can be deployed standalone within virtual machine instances, acting as a high-performance, flexible, and highly secure host-based firewall. This removes the need for hairpinning to an on-premise firewall, or a virtual firewall appliance in the cloud, resulting in more efficient network topologies and lower costs
