ECS-Optimized Alpine Linux - Getting Started

Documentation 03 Feb 2023

This documentation is provided as a quick start guide to our AWS MarketPlace Clients.


ECS is a fully managed container orchestration service from AWS that makes it easy for you to deploy, manage, and scale containerized applications. Containers are defined using task definitions and run as services across a fleet of Amazon EC2 instances. ECS can automatically scale up your applications to meet a spike in demand or scale down when demand is less, leading to cost-effective operations in the cloud.

Underneath this robust container orchestration solution from AWS is Docker, an industry-standard container runtime engine and the ECS-Agent responsible for scheduling services across your clusters.

This listing bundles this robust orchestration solution with Alpine Linux, a rock-solid Linux Operating System, into a single 1-Click deploy Optimized AMI.
