A task consists of a group of containers running together on a single host. You can now set a limit on the resources available to a task running on Amazon ECS. 

Previously, you had to set resource limits for each container running within a task separately. 

Now, you can set a limit on the amount of memory and CPU available to all the containers running within a task managed by Amazon ECS . This makes it easier to manage your tasks as and helps make your Task Definitions compatible with both Fargate and EC2 launch types.
