Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) company Amazon Web Services, Inc. has announced general availability of Amazon Elastic Container Services Anywhere, a new offer by Amazon ECS that allows customers to run and manage container based applications on premises by utilizing the same APIS, workload scheduling, cluster management, monitoring and deployment pipelines they use with Amazon ECS in AWS. Amazon ECS Anwhere provides a fully manage container service that allows customers to run, scale and secure Docker container applications on any customer managed infrastructure in addition to all AWS Regions, AWS hybrid infrastructure deployments and AWS local zones.
“Customers have told us that while they need to run containers on their own infrastructure, they don’t want the hassle of operating their own cluster management software. They love the simplicity of Amazon ECS, the fact that it just works, and want the same reliability, scalability, and security of Amazon ECS wherever they run their applications,” said Deepak Singh, VP, Compute Services, AWS. “With Amazon ECS Anywhere we are proud to provide our customers exactly what they’ve asked for—a single service and control plane to manage their container deployments across AWS Regions, AWS Outposts, AWS Wavelength, AWS Local Zones, and customer-owned infrastructure, both in their data centers and at edge locations. Nothing else in the industry does that.”
