Reducing Costs for Your Containerized Workloads on ECS
Efficiently managing container instances infrastructure is a complex task involving several layers of optimization. In this webinar with Spot.io we discussed how to optimize infrastructure for containers at 3 different stages:
- The instance lifecycle – should it run as an RI, a Spot Instance or plain On-Demand?
- The instance type and size – as we deploy many different ECS services, how do we best pick a mix of instances for our containerized applications?
- The Container Utilization – how do we make sure our services and tasks are optimally sized for their needs and aren’t oversubscribed for resources?
This session was led by Tomer Hadassi — Solutions Architects Team Lead at Spot, and Stuart Scott — AWS Content & Security Lead at Cloud Academy.
