Elastic Container Service (ECS) Course Overview

Elastic Container Service (ECS) Course Overview

The Elastic Container Service (ECS) course is an in-depth training program designed to equip learners with a comprehensive understanding of containerization and orchestration using AWS ECS. The course starts with Module 1: Containers Basics - Docker, setting the foundation by covering container fundamentals, Docker concepts, and how to build and manage Docker images and containers.

As learners progress to Module 2: Understand Clusters, Task Definitions, Tasks and Services, they gain insights into ECS and Fargate, learning how to set up clusters, define tasks, and manage services. Module 3: Elastic Container Registry (ECR) - Integration dives into ECR, teaching participants how to create repositories and integrate Docker with AWS's container registry.

In Module 4: Load Balancing and Autoscaling, the focus shifts to scaling applications using ECS, balancing traffic with load balancers, and implementing autoscaling policies. Finally, Module 5: AWS ECS – Monitoring and Logging teaches monitoring and logging best practices for maintaining and troubleshooting ECS environments.

This ECS training will enable learners to master the essentials of the ecs elastic container service, helping them to deploy, manage, and scale containerized applications on AWS efficiently.
