Today, Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) launches integrated service discovery in the Africa (Cape Town) and Europe (Milan) regions.

Amazon ECS service discovery makes it easy for your containerized services to discover and connect with each other. With Service Discovery, Amazon ECS creates and manages a registry of service names using AWS Cloud Map so you can refer to a service by name in your code and write DNS queries to have the service name resolve to the service’s endpoint at runtime.

Today, ECS Service Discovery is available for all networking modes for EC2 or AWS Fargate launch types. To learn more, visit the Amazon ECS Service Discovery documentation.
