Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS)

AMAZON Overview

The company delivers scalable and high-performance container management services, which support Docker containers. AWS offers a strong product portfolio in the CaaS market, comprising AWS Elastic Beanstalk and Amazon EC2 Container Service (Amazon ECS). AWS Elastic Beanstalk helps end-users by managing AWS resources, which are required to run an application. It handles various functionalities such as capacity provisioning, load balancing, scaling, and application health monitoring. Moreover, it allows end-users to easily deploy and manage containerized applications and reduces the complexities of provisioning the underlying infrastructure.

Amazon ECS helps enterprises to focus on their core business by implementing and administering cluster management software and other related services.
