Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) is a container management service that allows you to run Docker containers on a managed cluster of EC2 instances. Containers in ECS are organized as tasks (configuration for one or more container) and services (task run-time configurations). With ECS you can scale your container fleets using both standard EC2 instance auto-scaling and ECS service auto-scaling, which dynamically scales groups of containers based on metrics you define. There is no additional cost for ECS, you pay only for the associated AWS resources, like EC2 and EBS.
See the ECS product page for additional information.
