AWS Fargate

This blip is not on the current edition of the radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the radar.Understand more

AWS Fargate is a recent entry into the docker-as-a-service space, currently limited to the US-East-1 region. For teams using AWS Elastic Container Service (ECS), AWS Fargate is a good alternative without having to manage, provision and configure any underlying EC2 instances or clusters. Fargate allows defining (ECS or EKS – ECS for Kubernetes) tasks as a Fargate type, and they will run on the AWS Fargate infrastructure. If you like the focus on business functionality that AWS Lambda gives you, Fargate is the closest you can get when applications can't be deployed as single functions.
