Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) is a highly scalable, high-performance container orchestration service that supports Docker containers and allows you to easily run and scale containerized applications on AWS.

AWS Fargate is a new Amazon service which is stacked on top of their Elastic Container Service (ECS) and Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS). The advantage of using AWS Fargate is that you don’t have to worry about provisioning and scaling because the logic is already built in by the Amazon service. Using AWS Fargate, you can avoid setting up management servers and EC2 clusters, vastly reducing the amount of operational overhead required.
