"A new server less container solution for AWS!! "

What do you like best?

i have been using AWS Fargate for 1 year , it's a launch type within existing ECS(Elastic Container Service) , before introducing it most customer were running their application on AWS EC2 only , and that was really hard to configure and as a cloud architect you were supposed to mess up with so many things while deploying an application , but with AWS Fargate we can able to decouple the packaging of the application from the underlying OS, and it also enabled certain level of isolation between the different application running on a single OS ,it made the task of building cloud native application very easy!!

What do you dislike?

it requires some amount of experience on Amazon EC2 and knowledge of some services , it's not that much easy to directly implement it!!

Recommendations to others considering the product

widely used service for building , deploying clod based applications and it's very easy to scale up and scale down as per your requirement using AWS Fargate,and the pricing are veery transparent you only need to pay for what you use!!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

we're using it for around 1year to build cloud native applications!!

"Run Containers Without Hazzle Of Managing Servers."

What do you like best?

AWS Fargate allows you to run containers without managing servers or clusters.It gives you freedom of not choosing the server type and managing clusters.It lets you focus on designing and building clusters instead of managing vm's of servers.It comes in 2 modes fargate launch type and ec2 launch type.The prior one allows you to just design the containers choose the CPU requirement and create IAM policies and memory management and then finally launch the application.The later one ec2-launch type haves you to have more server level granular control over your application.The fargate has many benefits like freedom of not choosing cluster,easily scalable container and easy integration with ec2-instance.

What do you dislike?

I have nothing to dislike about amazon AWS fargate.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend using AWS Fargate to people who use servers and clusters for developing application specific services.You can go for AWS Fargate which gives you an option to integrate it with ec2-instance.Using AWS Fargate you just have to design the containers and then specify the hardware requirements and then release the application for usage.It is recommended tool for designing containers without managing servers or clusters.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using amazon AWS fargate with ec2-instance for developing containers for application specific services.It gives us freedom of not managing servers and clusters instead focus fully on developing the container and then just specify basic configuration of container like cpu,memory,networking and then launch the application.It has served its purpose at its best.
