Running Docker on AWS

JAX Editorial Team

Docker and AWS make a great couple. Docker can provide additional encapsulation and control while EC2 provides the scalable infrastructure.

In this session, Jonathan Weiss (Amazon Web Services) will show you how you can run Docker on EC2 using OpsWorks and the new Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS). We will leverage the power of Chef to control Docker and use Docker for application and service deployment. A dive deep into ECS will help you understand how to easily manage large Docker deployments on AWS.

Running an Amazon Web Service is the perfect opportunity for Jonathan to experience first hand the perils of large distributed applications and learn every day.
