What is Amazon ECS (EC2 Container Service)?
Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS) is a highly scalable, high performance container management service that supports containers and allows you to easily run and manage Docker enabled applications across a cluster of Amazon EC2 instances.
And now you guys are thinking, but what does that mean?
It means that the same Docker containers that you currently use will run exactly the same on Amazon ECS. It eliminate the need to install, operate and scale your own cluster management infrastructure and handles the complexity of running multiple containers like where in the cluster to schedule the container, availability, scalability and monitoring. Amazon ECS lets you launch and stop container-based applications with simple API calls, allows you to get the state of your cluster from a centralized service, and gives you access to many familiar Amazon EC2 features.
