Updating an Amazon EKS Cluster Kubernetes Version

Originally published at: https://sweetops.com/sub/updating-an-amazon-eks-cluster-kubernetes-version/

When a new Kubernetes version is available in Amazon EKS, you can update your cluster to the latest version. New Kubernetes versions introduce significant changes, so we recommend that you test the behavior of your applications against a new Kubernetes version before performing the update on your production clusters. You can achieve this by building a continuous integration workflow to test your application behavior end-to-end before moving to a new Kubernetes version.
