  6. 6. Why did we build Amazon ECS ? To make running Docker enabled applications in the cloud “awesome” Cluster Management Configuration Management Auto Scaling Scheduling MonitoringElastic Load Balancing
  7. 7. Key Components  Cluster: A cluster is a logical grouping of EC2 instances on which ECS tasks are run.  Task Definition: The task definition is a text file, in JSON format, describing the containers that together form an application. Task definitions specify various parameters for the application e.g. container image repositories, ports, storage etc.  Service: A service is a group of tasks that are created and maintained as instances of a task definition.  Tasks and Scheduler: A task is an instance of a task definition, created at runtime on a container instance within the cluster. The task scheduler is responsible for placing tasks on container instances across your clusters based on your resource needs.  Container Agent: The container agent runs on each EC2 instance within an ECS cluster. The agent sends telemetry data about the instance’s tasks and resource utilization to Amazon ECS. It will also start and stop tasks based on requests from ECS.  Image Repository: Amazon ECS downloads container images from container registries, which may exist within or outside of AWS, such as a accessible private Docker registry or Docker Hub.
