In recent years, containers have become a key component of modern application design. Increasingly, developers are breaking their applications apart into smaller components and distributing them across a pool of compute resources. It is relatively easy to run a few containers on your laptop, but building and maintaining an entire infrastructure to run and manage distributed applications is hard and requires a lot of undifferentiated heavy lifting.
In this session, you will discover some of the core architectural principles underlying Amazon ECS, a highly scalable, high performance service to run and manage distributed applications using the Docker container engine. You will walk through a number of patterns used by our customers to run their microservices platforms, to run batch jobs, and for deployments and continuous integration. You will explore the advanced scheduling capabilities of Amazon ECS and dive deep into the Amazon ECS Service Scheduler, which optimizes for long-running applications by monitoring container health, restarting failed containers, and load balancing across containers.
