Today, AWS announces the availability of AWS Fargate for Amazon ECS Windows containers in the AWS GovCloud (US) Regions. This feature simplifies the adoption of modern container technology for Amazon ECS customers by making it even easier to run their Windows containers on AWS.

Customers running Windows applications spend a lot of time and effort securing and scaling virtual machines to run their containerized workloads. Provisioning and managing the infrastructure components and configurations can slow down the productivity of developer and infrastructure teams. With today’s launch, customers no longer need to set up automatic scaling groups or manage host instances for their application. In addition to providing task-level isolation, Fargate handles the necessary patching and updating to help provide a secure compute environment. Customers can reduce the time spent on operational efforts, and instead focus on delivering and developing innovative applications.

Windows containers support on AWS Fargate on ECS is available in all public AWS regions and the AWS GovCloud (US) Regions as listed here. For pricing details, visit the Fargate pricing page. Visit our public documentation to learn more about using this feature from API, AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), AWS SDKs, or the AWS Copilot CLI.
