Presentation: Amazon ECS:a Platform to Run Production Containers


4:10pm - 5:00pm



With Amazon ECS we have built a platform to extend the value of running containers and microservice-based architectures in the cloud. In this session, we’ll dive deep into the architecture behind Amazon ECS and the design choices that have enabled scalable cluster management, highly performant container orchestration and scheduling, and the open-sourced golang-based Amazon ECS Agent.

We will also demonstrate the key features to build and run a container-based application on Amazon ECS.
