Ok, so Docker provides a consistent and repeatable way to manage your application life-cycle, and ECS is AWS’s platform for running Docker containers at scale. You cannot deny that Docker+ECS is a compelling solution to many of the promises of DevOps and Cloud infrastructure.
ECS abstracts away a lot of the complexity of running a Docker cluster while still providing significant flexibility and a very robust back end. Also, unlike other point-solutions for Docker clusters, ECS works well with other AWS services such as EC2, CloudWatch, and CloudFormation, allowing you to leverage other powerful AWS tools to build a complete solution.
ECS is ready for real-world, critical production loads today, but it is not an “easy button”. There are several considerations you need to keep in mind when planning an ECS implementation, including logging, monitoring, Auto Scaling, instance configuration management, and container/app configuration management.
