In an ever more connected world where we are all reliant on applications anywhere and everywhere, the need for companies to have cloud infrastructure and services where they need it the most has never been greater. While the cloud is growing rapidly and AWS Regions continue to roll out quickly, there are still workloads where AWS infrastructure and services need to be brought even closer, in order to deliver low-latency, address data residency needs and unique local data processing requirements as well as data migration and IT modernization scenarios. Hybrid cloud with AWS allows enterprises across all industries the opportunity to bring AWS services closer to where it’s needed, such as on-premises with AWS Outposts, in large metro areas with AWS Local Zones, at the edge of 5G networks with AWS Wavelength or at the remote edge with the Snow Family.

AWS re:Invent 2020: Amazon EKS Anywhere

Amazon EKS Anywhere provides a consistent experience for managing Kubernetes clusters on premises and on other clouds.

Enterprise environments are often a mix of cloud, on-premises data centers, and edge locations. Hybrid cloud architectures help organizations integrate their on-premises and cloud operations to support a broad spectrum of use cases using a common set of cloud services, tools, and APIs across on-premises and cloud environments.

"As the market leader for infrastructure as a service (IaaS), AWS has held out the longest of all key public cloud players from offering a next-generation computing platform, using its market leader privilege to position its platform as the best cloud platform and the best place to run applications. Customer requests as well as the demands of performance and latency-critical workloads in combination with growing data-residency compliance mandates led to the provision of AWS Outposts..."
