Amazon Elastic Container Service

Run highly secure, reliable, and scalable containers

Launch containers on AWS at scale without worrying about the underlying infrastructure.

Reduce costs with automatic scaling and pay-as-you-go pricing across multiple AWS compute options.

Deploy faster and focus on your applications by using Amazon ECS with AWS Fargate serverless compute for containers.

Build on Amazon ECS with confidence, knowing that the security, compliance, and architecture meet regulatory standards.

How it works

Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) is a fully managed container orchestration service that simplifies your deployment, management, and scaling of containerized applications. Simply describe your application and the resources required, and Amazon ECS will launch, monitor, and scale your application across flexible compute options with automatic integrations to other supporting AWS services that your application needs. Perform system operations such as creating custom scaling and capacity rules, and observe and query data from application logs and telemetry.
