Discover a centralized approach to monitor your virtual infrastructure, on-premise IT environment, and cloud infrastructure – all on a single platform.

Amazon ECS may seem new, but major firms like the group behind the Meteor JavaScript framework are using it right now in production.


Video Description:

"Two trends are driving app development: The shift from the server-based web to rich applications that run on a diverse set of mobile devices and modern browsers, and the growth of microservices running in the cloud that serve these clients. The results are “connected clients” - apps with the processing power of the device that are statefully connected and scaled to the cloud. In this session, you will learn about the architecture for Meteor's JavaScript app platform, Galaxy, which uses Amazon ECS, Elastic Load Balancing, and AWS CloudFormation to provide highly available, scalable, isolated environments for stateful apps across browsers and devices. We will discuss the essential characteristics of the platform, how those are provided for, and why we decided to use Amazon ECS instead of alternatives, such as Kubernetes. We will also demonstrate the Galaxy system in production."
