Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) is a highly scalable and fast container management service. ECS is responsible for managing the lifecycle of a container, starting from creating/running till it gets torn down.

ECS is designed to be a simpler alternative to some of the other more complex container orchestrators like Kubernetes, Hashicorp Nomad, and Apache Mesos.

With ECS, there’s no need to master complex deployment architectures. Deploying a containerised application is as easy as a few clicks.

  • What is ECS?
