Launched in 2014, Amazon ECS is a highly scalable and reliable container management service. It supports Docker containers and lets you run a cluster of EC2 instances. This eliminates the need for you to manage, run, or install your own container service.
Now, Amazon ECS is providing support for Windows containers as well. While this support will be at beta-level for now, you may test your applications in Windows containers by selecting the Windows Server 2016 Base with Containers AMI when creating clusters.
As an option, you may also use the Windows Container AWS CloudFormation Template to start with. Among others, it creates a Windows cluster with a specifiable number of container instances. You can refer to this guide for Windows containers.
Please note that the Windows Server Docker images are around 9GB in size and that your windows container instances require more space than Linux ones. Plan accordingly as it may take time to download and extract. As always, if you want help in installing your own container services for your enterprise, contact our experts here at PolarSeven.
