Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) is an offering from AWS that allows you to orchestrate the deployment of Docker-based applications. It's fully managed, can integrate with deployment automation tools, and features advanced scaling options.

Learning how to configure the network underlying your Amazon ECS deployments is a fundamental skill for anyone looking to use Amazon ECS in production.

This hands-on lab challenge will test your practical ability to deploy 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.
