This course is designed to teach you how to:
Design a microservices-based architecture that uses containers
Use Amazon ECS to run and scale a microservices-based application
Integrate Amazon ECS with other AWS services


Running Container-Enabled Microservices on AWS is designed to teach you how to manage and scale container-enabled applications by using Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS). This course highlights the challenges of running containerized applications at scale and provides guidance on creating and using Amazon ECS to develop and deploy containerized microservices-based applications. In the hands-on lab exercises you will use Amazon ECS to handle long-running services, build and deploy container images, link services together, and scale capacity to meet demand. You will also learn how to run container workers for asynchronous application processes.
