What is Amazon EC2 Container Service and why we use it?
Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS) is highly scalable, high performance container management service that supports Docker containers and allows you to easily run applications on a managed cluster of Amazon EC2 instances.
Why we use Amazon ECS?
Amazon ECS makes it easy to use containers as a building block for your applications by eliminating the need for you to install, operate, and scale your own cluster management infrastructure.
Amazon ECS lets you schedule long-running applications, services, and batch processes using Docker containers.
Amazon ECS is integrated with familiar features like Elastic Load Balancing, EBS volumes, VPC, and IAM. Simple APIs let you integrate and use your own schedulers or connect Amazon ECS into your existing software delivery process.
