Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) is a container orchestration service that you can use to run complex workloads in the public AWS cloud. It's a managed, scalable, and cost-effective way to deploy your containerized applications.

Learning how to integrate other AWS services with an existing Amazon ECS cluster will benefit anyone looking to level up their ECS skills.

This hands-on lab challenge will test your practical ability to modify a solution in a production-like AWS environment. You will be presented with a task and set of requirements you must fulfill to pass the challenge.

This is a real environment, which means you can prove your knowledge in an applied way, substituting multiple choice questions for a dynamic performance-based exam situation.
