Effective Jan 07, 2019, we are reducing the price for AWS Fargate by 20% for vCPU and 65% for memory across all regions where Fargate is currently available. Fargate is a compute engine for Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) that allows you to run containers without having to manage servers or clusters. Read more about the pricing update on the Fargate pricing detail page or on our blog.
At re:Invent 2018 we announced Firecracker, an open source virtualization technology that is purpose-built for creating and managing secure, multi-tenant containers and functions-based services. Firecracker enables you to deploy workloads in lightweight virtual machines called microVMs. These microVMs can initiate code faster, with less overhead. Innovations such as these allow us to improve the efficiency of Fargate and help us pass on cost savings to customers.
Fargate is used by thousands of customers around the world to run their containers without worrying about managing clusters or servers. Watch Turner, KPMG, and Catalytic talk about how they migrated to Fargate. Also, read Fargate customer blogs by Veritone, Corteva, and Datree to see how customers are using Fargate to run their containerized application.

Fargate is now available in the following regions: US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Northern California), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), EU (Frankfurt), EU (Ireland), and EU (London).
