Learn from industry-leading DevOps and Cloud Engineers at Releaseworks:
In the next 60 minutes, you will learn the key features of Amazon Elastic Container Service, and how to use it in practice. This is essential knowledge to any software developer or cloud engineer looking to deploy containerized applications in AWS.
Amazon Web Services is the leading cloud platform in the world. Amazon Elastic Container Service, or ECS, was among the first managed container orchestration platforms on the market and it remains as the default container orchestration platform in cloud-native AWS deployments.
Amazon ECS in 60 Minutes includes 12 labs to help you practice along with the instructor, and learn by doing.
This training course is designed to help you decide if Amazon ECS is the right choice for your team by demonstrating its benefits and differences to other container orchestrator solutions. If you do decide to build your container orchestration platform on Amazon ECS, this course will help you get started with it in practice.
We will cover how to create serverless ECS clusters with AWS Fargate, as well as more traditional EC2-based clusters. Our examples also include Terraform code to help you build ECS clusters following the Infrastructure as Code best practices. You are free to use the fully working code examples we provide in your work and hobby projects.
