hello, I'm working on getting a kubernetes cluster deployed and found that there are two different packages to do it on aws with two different sets of options. One is pulumi_aws, the second is pulumi_eks, which also has more options. Why are there two packages and are there any differences between them I should know about?

pulumi-eks is a wrapper around pulumi-aws that abstracts away most of the difficulties of bootstrapping an EKS cluster. if you want to build all of the parts of the EKS cluster yourself, use pulumi-aws. If you want to get started quickly and follow some defined best practices, use pulumi-eks
