Select from the broadest choice of services to run your containers. Choose AWS Fargate for serverless compute for containers, where AWS will manage your infrastructure provisioning. For full control over your compute environment, choose to run your containers on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). For container orchestrators, you can choose either Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) or Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS).
Combine the agility of containers with the elasticity and security of the cloud. AWS container services are deeply integrated with other AWS services by design, allowing your container applications to take advantage of the breadth and depth of AWS, from networking and security to monitoring. AWS container services run on a widespread global infrastructure with over 80 Availability Zones (AZ) across 25 Regions. More info on SLAs for the container services can be found here: Amazon ECS, Amazon EKS, and AWS Fargate.

Break apart applications and run them as independent components, called microservices, using containers to isolate processes.
Package batch processing and extract, transform, and load (ETL) jobs into containers to start jobs quickly and scale them dynamically in response to demand.
Quickly scale machine learning (ML) models for training and inference and run them close to your data sources on any platform with containers.
Standardize how you deploy code by building workflows for applications in containers and running them between on-premises and cloud environments.
Package entire applications and move them to the cloud without the need to make any code changes.
Help developers start innovating fast. Standardize how your applications are deployed and managed with containers, without the need to manage infrastructure.
Vanguard used Amazon ECS and AWS Fargate to reduce server management, which increased its speed to market from three months to 24 hours.
New Relic refactored its services platform to Amazon EKS to change from a host-based to a consumption-based pricing model in eight months.
