The Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS) RunTask and StartTask APIs now support three additional parameters in task definitions: cpu, memory, and memoryReservation. These additional override parameters make it easier to manage containers through the ECS API. 

Previously, changing the CPU and memory allocations for a container required creating a new task definition revision. 

Now, you can add cpu, memory, or memoryReservation parameters as overrides to modify the CPU and memory allocations for your containers through the ECS API RunTask or StartTask calls without creating a new task revision.

Amazon ECS is available in US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon), Canada (Central), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), EU (Frankfurt), EU (Ireland), EU (London).
