Amazon ECS Fargate Cluster

View SourceRelease Notes

Overview

This service contains Terraform code to deploy a production-grade ECS cluster for Fargate usage only on AWS using Elastic Container Service (ECS).

This service launches an ECS cluster on top of Fargate that is completely managed by AWS. If you wish to launch an ECS cluster on top of an Auto Scaling Group, refer to the ecs-cluster module. Refer to the section EC2 vs Fargate Launch Types for more information on the differences between the two flavors.

Features

This Terraform Module launches an EC2 Container Service Cluster that you can use to run Docker containers on Fargate and Fargate Spot.
