Amazon ECS Management at Scale

Advanced Automation and Optimization for Amazon ECS

Simple way to run Amazon ECS clusters while saving 80% on compute costs and over 90% resource utilization

Amazon Elastic Container Service

The Challenge

Manage, operate and scale infrastructure to maximize cluster utilization without suffering from idle resources can be a big challenge, especially at scale.

Traditional Approach:

  • Manage multiple Auto Scaling Groups
  • Determine the right instance type and size without
    considering Tasks’ requirements
  • Running on On-Demand infrastructure

The Solution

Advanced automation, optimization, and simplicity to increase resource utilization and save  80% of cloud infrastructure costs.


Spotinst Elastigroup Approach:

  • Manage one cluster with multiple compute resources
  • Automatic instance provisioning based on Services and Tasks requirements
  • Automatic placement of the best possible mix of Spot,
    Reserved, and On-Demand Instances

The Solution:

Cluster Auto Scaling

As you deploy Tasks and Containers, Spotinst Elastigroup scales the number of instances in the cluster to meet your application demand.

Node Auto Provisioing

Spotinst Elastigroup learns what resources (CPU, Memory, Ports) your Tasks need and decides what is the best instance size or type to accommodate those requirements.

90% Resource Utilization

Containers are first-class citizens. Spotinst Elastigroup studies the actual Containers requirements and matches ECS Tasks and Services with the most efficient and optimized mix of EC2 Instances, making sure the instances are highly utilized.

80% Less on infrastructure costs

Spotinst Elastigroup reliably uses cloud excess capacity (AKA Spot Instances) to save up to 80% of the infrastructure for cost, with enterprise-grade SLA.

Cost Management

Spotisnt Elastigroup lets you track your ECS cluster costs by Services and Applications. Using a show-back calculation to present visibility inside each Task and container across compute, networking and storage costs.

Enterprise-grade SLA

Spotinst Elastigroup automates infrastructure provisioning and management at scale to reduce the risk of human errors and discover errors before they happen.
