AWS Fargate

AWS Fargate

AWS Fargate is a serverless compute engine for containers that works with both Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS). It eliminates the need to manage servers or clusters and allows developers to focus on building and deploying containerized applications quickly and easily.

Use it when :

  • - You want to run containerized applications in a serverless environment without worrying about infrastructure management.
  • - You want to use container orchestration platforms like ECS or EKS without managing the underlying infrastructure.
  • - You want to scale your application automatically based on demand.
  • - You want to reduce overhead costs associated with managing servers or clusters.
  • - You want to benefit from the security and compliance features of AWS.

Consider :

  • - May require additional configuration and setup compared to traditional server-based environments.
  • - May have higher pricing compared to running and managing your own servers.
  • - May require a learning curve if you're not familiar with containers or serverless computing.
  • - May not be suitable for applications that require dedicated hardware or customization beyond the capabilities of the AWS managed service.
