DevOps is a technological function that more and more companies are relying on these days.
As the market for its ancillary products, such as cloud native infrastructure, has grown, so has the palpable demand for support systems such as container deployment services. Recognizing this demand early on, Amazon Elastic Container Service was created in 2014.
“Our customers have always appreciated the value and the simplicity of ECS for many years now ”, mentionned Massimo Re Ferre (Photo), principal technologist at Amazon Web Services Inc. “I mean, we relaunched ECS in 2014 and we saw great adoption of the product. And customers have always appreciated the fact that it was easy to use and operate. “
Re Ferre also spoke about the mitigating issues that prompted the company to create Outpost, a full-fledged cloud management infrastructure that users can deploy on their own servers.
“Many of our cusers wanted to go to the cloud, but they had these exceptions that they had to handle, with apps that couldn’t migrate to the cloud. “
Re Ferre spoke with John furrier, host of theCUBE, the live streaming studio of SiliconANGLE Media, during DockerCon. They discussed the current landscape of cloud native development and how ECS is doing its part to improve the evolution of cloud computing, the overall experience for developers and engineers, and the quality of software and mobile applications developed in. the cloud. (* Disclosure below.)
A development timeline
Amazon.com Inc. entered the cloud computing game in 2006. What we call cloud computing today was – back then – IT infrastructure simply delivered as web services. The company has since grown and now accounts for around 33% of the global cloud infrastructure services niche, according to Re Ferre.
ECS was launched in 2014 and, with its subsequent updates, began to support Docker integration. The product, which was designed to enable customers to manage and scale complex containers, has been successful with users, brands and businesses.
In 2020, AWS went on to announce ECS Anywhere. Scheduled for deployment in 2021, this is a service update that allows users to deploy native Amazon ECS tasks in any environment. These can vary from all forms of customer managed environments to traditional AWS infrastructure.
ECS and Docker
This year’s DockerCon is all about developer experience and productivity. And, according to Re Ferre, ECS was designed with a suite of features that put convenience and ease of use at the forefront.
“Consider the fact that a developer would previously need to create several hundred rows of confirmation templates to be able to take their candidacy and deploy it in the cloud. What they you must now modify a new file, a YAML file with a and the easy-to-use Docker Compose syntax, compose and deploy to … AWS and Using ECS Fargate and many other AWS services in the backend, ”Re Ferre said while providing an overview of new features coming to the service.
Re Ferre has also weighed in on a number of developments at AWS, including new advancements in the Internet of Things, advanced distributed technologies, and other machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies for the future. .
