AWS Fargate

  • A serverless compute engine for containers that works with both Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS).
  • With Fargate, no manual provisioning, patching, cluster capacity management, or any infrastructure management required.
  • How It Works

AWS Fargate

  • Use Case
    • Launching containers without having to provision or manage EC2 instances.
    • If you want a managed service for container cluster management.
  • Configurations
    • Amazon ECS task definitions for Fargate require that you specify CPU and memory at the task level (task definition).
    • Amazon ECS task definitions for Fargate support the ulimits parameter to define the resource limits to set for a container.
    • Amazon ECS task definitions for Fargate support the awslogs, splunk, firelens, and fluentd log drivers for the log configuration.
    • When provisioned, each Fargate task receives the following storage:
      • 10 GB of Docker layer storage
      • An additional 4 GB for volume mounts.
    • Task storage is ephemeral.
    • If you have a service with running tasks and want to update their platform version, you can update your service, specify a new platform version, and choose Force new deployment. Your tasks are redeployed with the latest platform version.
    • If your service is scaled up without updating the platform version, those tasks receive the platform version that was specified on the service’s current deployment.
  • Network
    • Amazon ECS task definitions for Fargate require that the network mode is set to awsvpc. The awsvpc network mode provides each task with its own elastic network interface.
  • Compliance
    • PCI DSS Level 1, ISO 9001, ISO 27001, ISO 27017, ISO 27018, SOC 1, SOC 2, SOC 3, and HIPAA
    • AWS Fargate is not yet available in AWS GovCloud.
  • Pricing
    • You pay for the amount of vCPU and memory resources consumed by your containerized applications.
