Today, we are excited to announce the general availability of Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) Anywhere, a new capability of Amazon ECS. Amazon ECS Anywhere provides a fully managed container orchestration service that enables customers to run and manage containerized applications on-premises using the same APIs, cluster management, workload scheduling, monitoring, and deployment pipelines they use with Amazon ECS today. Customers can use Amazon ECS Anywhere on their own infrastructure by connecting their servers or instances to the managed Amazon ECS control plane. Enterprises who need to keep their data on-premises for latency or regulatory reasons can now use a single and consistent cloud-managed container orchestrator across their hybrid footprint.
With Amazon ECS Anywhere, customers can deploy and manage containerized applications on any customer-managed instance without having to manually install, operate, and manage container orchestration software on-premises. With this launch, Amazon ECS now offers consistent tooling and APIs, along with a single pane of view, for all container-based applications, irrespective of the environment they’re running in. Additionally, customers can run their data processing workloads or legacy applications in on-premises environments and easily migrate to the cloud at any time.
