Amazon Container Services

Easily run and manage containers at scale, in the cloud

AWS offers several production-grade services that enable you to build, deploy, and scale container-based applications.

Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS) is a high-performance container management service for Docker containers. ECS allows you to easily run applications across a managed cluster of Amazon EC2 instances. Additionally, key components of ECS are open source, so you can customize them to suit your application.

Amazon EC2 Container Registry (ECR) is a container registry that makes it easy to store, manage, and deploy Docker container images. Images managed on Amazon ECR can be deployed to any container management service, including Amazon ECS.

Use this site to learn more about how to use, customize, and scale Amazon ECS and ECR for your containerized applications.
