Hi I'm Nathan Peck! 👋

Hi! I work as a senior developer advocate at AWS.

Meet AWS developer advocate Nathan Peck, and learn his thoughts on building with containers.

EC2 or AWS Fargate?

There are two main compute options for running containers with Amazon Elastic Container Service: EC2 (Deploy and manage your own cluster of self managed virtual machine instances that can each run one or more containers) AWS Fargate (Run containers directly, without any virtual machines to think about) Both are completely valid techniques for operating your containers in a scalable and reliable fashion.

Comparison of Amazon EC2 and AWS Fargate across pricing, performance, and administrative overhead, with examples of best fits for each compute option.

Does container orchestration make it easier to manage your application, or does it make it harder?
