Why Amazon Web Services (AWS)

AWS is a secure cloud services environment, offering compute power, database storage, content delivery and other functionality to help businesses scale and grow. Explore how millions of customers are currently leveraging AWS cloud products and solutions to build sophisticated applications with increased flexibility, scalability and reliability.

By moving to AWS, organizations are realizing benefits such as a broad IT infrastructure, support for a variety of use cases, feature sets, enhanced visibility, and the ability to deploy globally within minutes.


To simplify the deployment process for the new recommendation engine, the team set up Docker containers using Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS). Docker containers on Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS) enabled the customers to easily move to a micro services – based architecture.

Each job is created as a container and Amazon ECS schedules the container across the Amazon EC2 instance cluster. Amazon Fargate with Amazon ECS to automate deployment of containerized services, including clusters on virtual machines. Amazon ECS handles all the cluster management and container orchestration, and containers provide the necessary resource isolation.

Tools Set

  • AWS ECR:Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR) is a fully-managed Docker container registry that makes it easy for developers to store, manage, and deploy Docker container images.
  • AWS Fargate: AWS Fargate is a compute engine for Amazon ECS that allows you to run containers without having to manage servers or clusters. With AWS Fargate, you no longer have to provision, configure, and scale clusters of virtual machines to run containers.
  • AWS CloudTrail: It is a service that enables governance, compliance, operational auditing, and risk auditing of your AWS account.
  • AWS ECS:Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) is a highly scalable, high-performance container orchestration service that supports Docker containers and allows you to easily run and scale containerized applications on AWS.

Business Benefits

  • Using Docker containers managed by Amazon ECS allows the iXcheck Technologies Developers team to take an infrastructure-as-code approach, making management and deployment transparent, seamless, and fast.
  • The creation of new server resources is completely automated, so developers can focus on software rather than managing servers. Before Amazon ECS, DevOps engineers would spend weeks building an environment for each project. Now developers can innovate much faster.
  • Major benefit of using AWS CodeBuild is the continuous scaling. The service scales up and down to meet a developer's build volume. Each build submitted to the service is immediately processed and it can run separate build concurrently, ensuring no build waits in a queue.
  • Being the new product in the market and the launch is still not set. One of the biggest challenge for the customer is related with the cost and its optimization. Therefore, by using the micro services along with DevOps it gives the opportunity to manage the cost effectively.
