ECS is the AWS Docker container service that handles the orchestration and provisioning of Docker containers. ECS allows you to automate the deployment and scheduling of containers without having to install and operate your own container orchestration and cluster management software. It works by automatically deploying containers in EC2 hosts running in a customer’s VPC. ECS consists of multiple built-in components that enable administrators to create clusters, tasks and services.
