Deliver Docker containers continuously with ECS
Philipp Garbe, Docker Captain and Lead Platform Engineer at Scout24, gives us an overview of ECS and all the other services you will need in order to run your containers in production.
With Docker, it became easy to start applications locally without installing any dependencies. Even running a local cluster is not a big thing anymore. AWS on the other side offers with ECS a managed container service that states to schedule containers based on resource needs, isolation policies, and availability requirements. Sounds good, but is it really that easy?
In this talk, you’ll get an overview of ECS and all other services that are needed to run your containers in production. Philipp Garbe shows us how an ECS cluster and your containerized applications can automatically be deployed and scaled. He also shares his experiences and explains which features are still missing.
