As organizations adopt microservices using containers, there is a growing need for extensible tooling to orchestrate the scheduling and placement of these applications based on specific business requirements. Building highly scalable, high-performance multitenant managed services is challenging, and users need both sensible out-of-the-box configurations (that “just work”) and the ability to customize and extend the native functionality of their frameworks.
Abby Fuller offers a brief overview of Amazon EC2 Container Service, which provides a fully managed, highly scalable container orchestration platform, and a deep dive into container lifecycles using the open source ECS CLI and ECS Agent. Abby also discusses future plans to deliver a multitenant and fully managed open source scheduling framework that orchestrates millions of container launches.
