Weave Kubernetes Platform is an automated Git-based configuration management system which allows operations teams to control, secure and audit Kubernetes clusters configuration automating the rollout of a standardized self-service platform. Development teams then use GitOps to manage the full lifecycle of their applications, with guardrails in place to increase velocity and accelerate innovation for cloud, hybrid and edge deployments.
The platform is built on open source and designed to work alongside Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), further simplifying the adoption of Kubernetes on AWS.
