AWS Fargate Documentation

AWS Fargate is a serverless compute engine for containers that works with both Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS). AWS Fargate is designed to help you focus on building your applications. Fargate reduces the need to provision and manage servers, lets you specify and pay for resources per application, and helps you improve security through application isolation by design.

How it works

AWS Fargate is a serverless, pay-as-you-go compute engine that allows you to focus on building applications without managing servers. AWS Fargate is compatible with both Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS).

Use cases

Web applications, APIs, and microservices

Build and deploy applications, APIs, and microservices architectures with similar speed and immutability of containers. Fargate reduces the need to own, run, and manage the lifecycle of a compute infrastructure so that you can focus on applications.

Run and scale containerized workloads

Use Fargate with Amazon ECS or Amazon EKS to run and scale your containerized data processing workloads.

Support AI and ML training applications

Create an AI and ML development environment that is flexible and portable. With Fargate, achieve the scalability you need to boost server capacity without over-provisioning— to train, test, and deploy your machine learning (ML) models.
