Deployment with AWS Elastic Container Service
Samvera Connect - October 2018
An abbreviated history of cloud computing
In the beginning there was the server room
Then Jeff Bezos offered to rent you a virtual machine (2006)
and it was good.
Containers appeared (2008)
Container as a Service (CaaS)
Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS)
- Cluster - e.g.: The production environment
- Task - Which containers should I run and how many resources
- Service - Network, Load balance, Auto scale
The price per vCPU is $0.00001406 per second ($36.43 per month) and
per GB memory is $0.00000353 per second ($9.14 per month).
~$600 per year
You can turn it off when you're not using it!
Set up autoscaling to add capacity when you need it and scale back when you don't.
