“We want to create an end-to-end ecosystem that standardizes the way we build, deploy, run, and observe software but also in a compliant, secure, and cost efficient manner with an overall positive developer experience. We introduced the ability to do Blue-Green deployments to a multi-tenant Amazon ECS cluster that allows us to essentially accommodate different types of workflows, from vanilla Linux Containers, but also Windows and GPU instances.”
Evgeny Shulyatyev, Software Engineering Manager, Cloud Platform - Autodesk

“Why did we prefer Amazon ECS over Kubernetes? We don’t want to add the complexity of running our own container orchestration software, and the integration between the AWS services is not out of the box when we run our own orchestration software. Using Spot Instances and Amazon ECS helps us to reduce down the EC2 cost drastically as the instances are running as Spot and we don’t have to maintain the AMIs for backup.”
Saurav Yadav, Engineering Manager, DevOps - Goibibo
Medlife offers consultation with in-house doctors via outbound calls, as well as lab services at its diagnostic center in Bangalore. Catering to around 3,000 cities across India, Medlife is unique in its management of the complete lifecycle of orders; it currently owns and operates 40 proprietary fulfillment centers to provide a seamless customer experience.
“Amazon ECS works like a charm for setting up our containers and deployments. In just two years, we have grown from 5 to 40 microservices which mostly pertain to orders, procurement, and inventory management. Most of these microservices are managed using container services, and this has helped streamline the business by accelerating the time from prototyping to production. Decoupling the application’s core features has enabled DevOps engineers to deploy changes more frequently. The team was previously doing two releases a week—now it is doing two a day.”
Pranesh Vittal, Database Architect - Medlife
Bridestory was launched in 2014 as a one-stop shop for brides to find wedding inspiration and connect with potential vendors. Headquartered in Indonesia, the Bridestory app boasts a rapidly expanding user base with some 700,000 visitors, including users in the Philippines and Singapore.
“Previously, we were averaging three weeks to launch one big feature, whereas now our developers are empowered to conduct small releases daily, with less than a 1 percent failure rate. The team start splitting the application into smaller services and setting up Docker containers with Amazon ECS. With time-to-market and reliability as its key criteria, Bridestory aimed to deploy smaller features every few days to lower the rate of failure.”
