“By operating on AWS, we’ll be able to innovate at the speed and scale we need to deliver powerful new tools that will help our customers run their own ventures and be successful online,” said Charles Beadnall, Chief Technology Officer at GoDaddy.

GoDaddy has been an active adopter of containerised applications and will now leverage AWS’s Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS). This service will allow GoDaddy to run several of its “Kubernetes” workload on AWS without change.
