Before jumping into the AWS ECS pool let us know a bit about Dockers!

What is Docker?

Docker is a technology for automating the deployment of an application as a portable container, allowing it to function well in a variety of contexts. Let’s say we want to migrate our application, in such a case we just need to create a docker image by 

packing the code in a docker container and shipping that image to the cloud environment, without the need of compiling and relaunching.

Why Amazon ECS?

With ECS the services can run seamlessly because ECS manages containers the applications can run in a highly available mode, that is, if something goes wrong then some other container gets found, and then the application runs in that container.
