Running Container-Enabled Microservices on AWS

In this course, you will learn how to manage and scale container-enabled applications by using Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS). We will explore the challenges of running containerized applications at scale and provide guidance on creating and using Amazon ECS to develop and deploy containerized microservices‒based applications. In the hands-on 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. We will also discuss how to run container workers for asynchronous application processes.
