Scaling conainers in 2022

last updated: Oct 20, 2023

Excellent article on the different methods for running a container on AWS, and how they scale.

I'm honestly less interested in how they scale and more interested in how they perform/cost, which sadly this article doesn't get into, but it's very good anyway.

confirms my belief that ECS on fargate is currently the simplest/best approach for most apps that should be considered the default, but I'm hopeful for App Runner to become more usable/cheaper in the future.

Found via this tweet

this is the app they deployed to all the different services

this repo contains the terraform they used to deploy to each of the services

this is the docker build GHA action they used to build all the containers
