Lession - #978 AWS Containers

Containers in the AWS Cloud

Containers are popular for deploying and managing applications in the cloud.

Containers let you package code in a single object.

The container isolates the code and removes the dependencies to other components.

It runs in isolation.

Containers are an essential concept in micro service architectures.

Containerized Approach

Having the application in a container makes debugging easier.

It makes it easier because the application is inside of an isolated container.

The container remains consistent regardless of deployment.

Containers and Scale

It is important to design for scale when using containers.

There could be tens of hosts with hundreds of containers as the environment grows.

One should prepare for how to manage operations at scale.
