Amazon EC2 Container Service

  • Pablo Acuña


Although every container orchestration framework uses its own specific language for its concepts, they all try to solve the same issues. That’s why you’ll find some similarities between Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS) and Kubernetes but also a couple of differences in the way they solve the issues. One strong point in favor of ECS is that because it’s a native AWS (Amazon Web Services) technology, it is completely integrated with the other components, such as VPC (Virtual Private Cloud), EC2, ELBs (Elastic Load Balancers), and Route53. The main issue with ECS is that it is coupled to AWS, and currently you can’t run an ECS cluster on other cloud providers, which makes sense since it’s an Amazon technology.
